Watch subtree would certainly be more effective and scalable providing
you can get the information out in a useful manner. For an indexer thats
quite tricky - one approach would be to hand the indexer a read only
file handle to the object when it closes or after some kind of timeout
iff the indexer is the same uid as the closer. Otherwise if I pass a
path name the file may have moved again.
