How does this implementation compare to the MMapDirectory?

I've found that the MMapDirectory is far faster than the FSDirectory  
on 64-bit machines with very large indexes. Is the explicit caching  
of the NioFSDirectory expected to be a considerable win over allowing  
the OS to do caching of data from the filesystem?
