The file monitoring API is as simple as the current API for idle and
timeout sources:


General comments:

- In general, I like the proposed API.

- I wonder if we need the extension hooks at all. Assuming we have
 implementations using inotify and whatever the native file monitoring
 apis on win32 or OS X are, you don't actually win anything by replacing
 the builtin implementation by, e.g, gnome-vfs...

Comments on the patch:

- The docs for add_full make it sound as if a custom backend could
 add support for remote file monitoring, but that is not the case.

- If we do find the extension api necessary, set_hooks should probably
 warn if it is called "too late".
