> With CompactingMemstore becoming the new default, a store comprises multiple memory segments
and not just 1-2. MemStoreScanner encapsulates the scanning of segments in the memory part
of the store. SnapshotScanner is used to scan the snapshot segment upon flush to disk.
> Having the logic of scanners scattered in multiple classes (StoreScanner, SegmentScanner,
MemStoreScanner, SnapshotScanner) makes maintainance and debugging challenging tasks, not
always for a good reason.
> For example, MemStoreScanner has a KeyValueHeap (KVH). When creating the store scanner
which also has a KVH, this makes a KVH inside a KVH. Reasoning about the correctness of the
methods supported by the scanner (seek, next, hasNext, peek, etc.) is hard and debugging 
them is cumbersome. 
> In addition, by removing the MemStoreScanner layer we allow store scanner to filter out
each one of the memory scanners instead of either taking them all (in most cases) or discarding
them all (rarely).
> SnapshotScanner is a simplified version of SegmentScanner as it is used only in a specific
context. However it is an additional implementation of the same logic with no real advantage
of improved performance.
> Therefore, I suggest removing both MemStoreScanner and SnapshotScanner. The code is adjusted
to handle the list of segment scanners they encapsulate.
> This fits well with the current code since in most cases at some point a list of scanner
is expected, so passing the actual list of segment scanners is more natural than wrapping
a single (high level) scanner with Collections.singeltonList(...).
