I don't think this is right. Keep in mind that the monitors are basically a
single-threaded event-driven machine. Both trimming and building
incrementals happen in direct response to receiving messages, in the main
dispatch loop, and while trimming is happening the PaxosService is not
readable. So it won't be invoking build_incremental() and they won't run
