Tuple Manager implementation is feature complete
Recently completed the implementation of Tuple Scans. Unlike Index Scans which use next key locking to avoid phantom reads, the Tuple Scan implementation does not protect the gap between one tuple and the next. This means that Tuple Scans cannot provide strictly Serializable behaviour. I wonder if this will be an issue later on.
