Subject Re: about HBase versions

Right now the implementation will return an indeterminate version when
there are duplicates with the same timestamp. If they happen to have
the same value, you are ok.

I think there are a few other gotchas with regards to compaction.
Each timestamp only counts as 1 version, thus you may end up with more
data than you intended depending on how many duplicates you have.
