 Currently for chert and (in 1.2.x) flint and brass it opens at the latest
 revision each table has, which may not be the same revision if a change
 was partly committed but failed.

 The new brass on trunk doesn't have this issue, as it uses the version
 file to open inputs for compaction.

 I think in practice this case is rare, but it could result in a bad output
 from the compaction (inconsistencies between tables) so we should address
