Tables should automatically scale up if below their minimums #202
I set up my tables and then realized that one of them would need a lot more reads, so I added a min_provisioned_reads for that table. I expected it to automatically scale up, but it didn't. Based on the code, I think min_provisioned_reads is only consulted if we've already decided to scale the table. This surprised me.

It looks like this patch doesn't respect Dynamo's "you can only increase the provisioning by 100% at a time" restriction. I have a table that it's trying to adjust from a throughput of 3 directly to 10 (which is the minimum I set), but it fails every time because Dynamo will only let it be adjusted up to 6.
