How often does an external file change in that way?

FWIW, auto-revert mode is often used to track changes to files that do
change size, e.g. log file, compilation output, etc, and in such cases,
Jari's patch is a significant improvement, even if it is not a general
solution to the problem.

For the release, I'd say Jari's patch is good enough!
