Orca tries to be pretty smart about not re-reading files it's already read.  It 
keeps track of the timestamp and size of the file, so if neither of these 
change, it shouldn't reread the whole thing.

It will read the first line of the file to learn which columns it has though.

Are you seeing noticable slowdown because of this?
