FileSystemWatcher breaking news
As gamin used inotify when available, I hesitated adding a backend for Inotify to our FileSystemWatcher.
Things started to change when gnome-vfs added inotify support. Now it's possible that your brand-new linux distro does not have FAM or gamin, as gnome-vfs will trigger file system events directly from data provided by the kernel.
So, yeah, the new backend is already in SVN and you just need to update to get it working (rerunning autogen.sh might be needed, kernel 2.6.?? needed).
