Is it really faster?  Surely all you save is the construction of the  
various query objects, but the query itself would have to be re-run  
every time.  Or does it attach a listener to the cache and check  
whether any new additions/removals should be used to update the result  
set?  I don't see how that could be much faster though.

Adding Hibernate-dev in cc so that the HIbernate Search guys can  
comment too.
