 I think it is a bad idea.
 mmap will issue a SIGBUS if we try to read the file if it has been
truncated for example.

 From, irc, you implied that it helps performances (why not) and allows
to reach back the level of perf of 0.8.6. Unless I am wrong, 0.8.6 doesn't
use it, and so you are probably hidding a bug/regression.
