> Let's say you have a pre-built HFile that contains a cell:
> ('rowkey1', 'family1', 'qual1', 1234L, 'value1')
> We bulk load this first HFile. Now, let's create a second HFile that contains a cell
that overwrites the first:
> ('rowkey1', 'family1', 'qual1', 1234L, 'value2')
> That gets bulk loaded into the table, but the value that HBase bubbles up is still 'value1'.
> It seems that there's no way to overwrite a cell for a particular timestamp without an
explicit put operation. This seems to be the case even after minor and major compactions happen.
> My guess is that this is pretty closely related to the sequence number work being done
on the compaction algorithm via HBASE-7842, but I'm not sure if one of would fix the other.
