Subject Re: Warning in TupleStorageSubBlock.hpp

It seems that bulkInsert() will put the newly inserted tuples right after the last tuple of
the block, so getAttributeValue() and similar methods should work. I didn't check bulkInsert()
in all implementations of TupleStorageSubBlock, so it might be great if you could look into

However, the tuple_id for a specific tuple might change after rebuild(), so I'm not sure if
that would be considered safe or not.

Ah, so that just means that index subblocks may potentially have become dirty due to the bulkInsert.
However, it doesn’t mean that functions like getAttributeValue() are potentially broken
too, right? In other words, the TupleStorageSubBlock itself is still guaranteed to be in a
consistent state, only that it may be inconsistent with any index subblocks?

Thanks Shixuan!

until rebuild() is called. Thus any operation based on index or tuple order will not be safe.
