There is definately interest in this, and we want it in gio. However,
I'm not the right person to review this (not very good at win32). It
would be nice if e.g. tor could look at it.

Fam is only a module because it pulls in extra library dependencies
which many apps don't want. inotify is built in because is just needs a
syscall, so having the code unused in the glib library does not affect
apps not wanting to use this. 

What dll is ReadDirectoryWatcher in? My guess is that this is in some
core library and then it imho makes sense to have this class built in.
