Key Value collision
Hi,

I am wondering what happens when we add the following:

row, col, timestamp --> v1

A flush happens. Now, we add

row, col, timestamp --> v2

A flush happens again. In this case if MAX_VERSIONS == 1, how is the tie
broken during reads and during minor compactions, is it arbitrary ?

Thanks
Varun
