> The impetus here is this: a node that was down for some period and comes back can serve
stale information.  We know from CASSANDRA-768 that we can't just wait for hints, and know
that tangentially related CASSANDRA-3569 prevents us from having the node in a down (from
the FD's POV) state handle streaming.
> We can *almost* set join_ring to false, then repair, and then join the ring to narrow
the window (actually, you can do this and everything succeeds because the node doesn't know
it's a member yet, which is probably a bit of a bug.)  If instead we modified this to put
the node in hibernate, like replace_address does, it could work almost like replace, except
you could run a repair (manually) while in the hibernate state, and then flip to normal when
it's done.
> This won't prevent the staleness 100%, but it will greatly reduce the chance if the node
has been down a significant amount of time.
