As a follow-up, it seemed that in the past much of Lucene relied on  
the OS disk cache for performance.  The FieldCache seems to go  
against this, probably because of the parsing involved.

The 'fixed-length' key file would not need extensive parsing, and  
thus seems more suitable for OS level caching.
