Subject Re: Use of multiple Keyspaces

as rcoli just reminded me, i should be more clear that it is 1
_active_ memtable per CF, but there may be several pending flush.

space from deletions is only reclaimed after GCGraceSeconds has
elapsed AND a major compaction is run.  default for the former is 10
days.  the latter is not automatic.
