Or perhaps Nick would be willing to do it, as they probably take a
packager's request a little more seriously and he'd probably be better
at explaining the situation? :-)

It seems a little slower (i.e. opening a directory in konqueror and
touch/rm'ing a file will take ~500 ms for konqueror to reflect the
change) but pretty solid. I think it's a worthy sacrifice in order to
get rid of an additional package and process, so thumbs up for enabling
Nick, do you know what happens if libfam is available and kdelibs itself
is inotify-enabled? Which will take precedence?
