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 
it :-)

Nick, do you know what happens if libfam is available and kdelibs itself 
is inotify-enabled? Which will take precedence?
