Right and for the latter case there is also the option of using
SegmentMK, which doesn't suffer from this. For the Microkernel based
implementation we can reconsider further optimisations if it turns out
we need to improve per cluster node session concurrency.

Going forward I will therefore:
- move the post commit hook to NodeStoreBranch.merge,
- leverage its rebasing capability in the case of SegementMK,
- explicitly synchronise in the case of the MircorKernel based
