    Description

      Currently windows defaults to SimpleFSDirectory, but this is a problem due to the synchronization.

      I have been benchmarking queries sequentially and was pretty surprised at how much faster
      MMapDirectory is, for example for cases that do many seeks.

      I think we should change the defaults for windows as such:

      if (WINDOWS and UNMAP_SUPPORTED and 64-bit)
      use MMapDirectory
      else
      use SimpleFSDirectory

      I think we should just consider doing this for 4.0 only and see how it goes.
