I *think* I have a vested interest in this as well. An age or two ago,
I started an inotify interface on a query engine (when some data file
changes on disk, it re-reads). I didn't know what I was doing and
ended up with something that tightloops.
Since inotify works on fds, what you're doing might teach me my next
steps. (I'd of course love to see inotify/fsevent/FileSystemWatcher
widgets in Asio and am happy to donate whatever I have of value).
