Subject timestamp uses
Date Wed, 01 Apr 2009 13:56:15 GMT

So far, few if any of the schema designs I've come across have really 
talked about using the timestamp field and HBase's automatic deletion of 
old cells in a smart way.

What is the timestamp typically used for? Snapshotting? Implementing 
more complicated transactions than HBase natively supports?
