[erlang-questions] auto-syncing mnesia after a network split

What about keeping a version counter on each mnesia node in the  
cluster and adding a version number to every record?

Alternatively, the version counter could be kept per table or a  
timestamp could be used instead.

The version number would be bumped  on every insert or update and the  
node or table with the highest vnum would be chosen as the master  
after nodes rejoin.

The goal is to pick the latest record as the true one.

What do you think?
