> For several use cases (think +1/-1 votes on forum posts) it would be good to have some
basic support for atomic counters in Oak. Such counters must:
> # correctly reflect increments/decrements by integral parts across threads / cluster
> # exhibit some well defined consistency characteristics amongst each other, 
> # not require cluster wide coordination.
> 1. is required so in the forum post example the correct number of votes is recorded for
each post. 
> 2. is important so in the forum post example sorting by votes results in the correct
> 3. is important as global cluster synchronisation run contrary to out overall scalability
> Additionally such counters should allow the user to trade off the consistency characteristics
from 2 for availability. I.e. scarifying some availability results in hight consistency.
