tracker will still crawl through to get the directories to watch every
time you start up and until we have a better kernel system for mass
watching of files thats as good as it can get.
I had researched how to do that some time ago;
There is such a thing in the form of rlocate:
This provides the ability to watch any change in the entire filesystem.
It also provides a daemon and an up-to-date locate command.
It is basically an out-of-tree kernel module using the LSM hooks.
no need to recompile the kernel,
must be relinked when the kernel is updated
conflicts with SElinux and other LSM-using modules.
