---------------------------------------

Feel free to reopen and re-describe this as a possible enhancement if there is a particular
compelling reason (use case) to change this behavior.

> this fix aims for bug mentioned in http://hbase.apache.org/book.html 5.8.2.1:
> "Deletes mask puts, even puts that happened after the delete was entered. Remember that
a delete writes a tombstone, which only disappears after then next major compaction has run.
Suppose you do a delete of everything <= T. After this you do a new put with a timestamp
<= T. This put, even if it happened after the delete, will be masked by the delete tombstone.
Performing the put will not fail, but when you do a get you will notice the put did have no
effect. It will start working again after the major compaction has run. These issues should
not be a problem if you use always-increasing versions for new puts to a row. But they can
occur even if you do not care about time: just do delete and put immediately after each other,
and there is some chance they happen within the same millisecond."
