Re: [Tracker] Feedback for 0.5.0

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.
Integration pros:
no need to recompile the kernel,
Integration cons:
must be relinked when the kernel is updated
conflicts with SElinux and other LSM-using modules.
