-------------------------------------

Note that we stopped memory mapping by default in {{pyarrow.parquet}}.

> Arrow is supposed to let you work with datasets bigger than memory. Memory 
> mapping is a big part of that. It should be the default way that files are 
> read in the `read_*` functions. To disable memory mapping, we could use a 
> global `option()`, or a function argument, but that might clutter the 
> interface. Or we could not give a choice and only fall back to not memory 
> mapping if the platform/file system doesn't support it.
