Nothing that simply uses the standard file IO interface is going to be 
"fully" transactional.  Only by maintaining a dedicated transaction log is 
going to meet that requirement.

That said, the technique Lucene uses reduces the chance significantly that 
application failures will result in a corrupted index base.
