Nope. We know exactly which remote handlers are called, and how they
behave. Do you expect other implementations of remote handlers? I don't,
because I'm not aware of other candidates but inotifywait and gvfs-monitor-dir.

I still don't understand what's the difference between local and remote
events in your eyes. I've tried to implement remote handlers to behave
exactly like the local ones. That's the Tramp philosophy.

Best regards, Michael.
