How to config hbase0.94.2 to retain deleted data

Hi, All,
I want to retain all deleted key-value pairs in hbase. I have tried to
config HColumnDescript as follow to make it return deleted.

  public void postOpen(ObserverContext<RegionCoprocessorEnvironment> e) {
    HTableDescriptor htd = e.getEnvironment().getRegion().getTableDesc();
    HColumnDescriptor hcd = htd.getFamily(Bytes.toBytes("cf"));

However, it does not work for me, as when I issued a delete and then query
by an older timestamp, the old data does not show up.

hbase(main):119:0> put 'usertable', "key1", 'cf:c1', "v1", 99
hbase(main):120:0> put 'usertable', "key1", 'cf:c1', "v2", 101
hbase(main):121:0> delete 'usertable', "key1", 'cf:c1', 100
hbase(main):122:0> get 'usertable', 'key1', {COLUMN => 'cf:c1', TIMESTAMP
=> 99, VERSIONS => 4}
COLUMN                CELL

0 row(s) in 0.0040 seconds

hbase(main):123:0> get 'usertable', 'key1', {COLUMN => 'cf:c1', TIMESTAMP
=> 100, VERSIONS => 4}
COLUMN                CELL

0 row(s) in 0.0050 seconds

hbase(main):124:0> get 'usertable', 'key1', {COLUMN => 'cf:c1', TIMESTAMP
=> 101, VERSIONS => 4}
COLUMN                CELL

 cf:c1                timestamp=101, value=v2

1 row(s) in 0.0050 seconds

Note this is a new feature in 0.94.2
I did not find too many sample code online, so... any one here has
experience in using HBASE-4536. How should one config
hbase to enable this feature in hbase?
