Varun Thacker commented on LUCENE-2795:
---------------------------------------

This is great for merging . Does IndexReader use the SEQUENTIAL flag for accessing the index
?

> Today DirectIOLinuxDir is tricky/dangerous to use, because you only want to use it for
indexWriter and not IndexReader (searching).  It's a trap.
> But, once we do LUCENE-2793, we can make it fully general purpose because then a single
native Dir impl can be used.
> I'd also like to make it generic to other Unices, if we can, so that it becomes UnixDirectory.
