You are so right!   I didn't think this would be possible.  I think
there would be a need for some kind of system-wide monitoring facility
that acted upon file creation and the like.  So Nautilus doesn't have
that responsibility.  Makes a lot of sense.  

Nautilus would only need to use the info instead of calculating it.
