Re: Emacs inotify support?

    It would be useful with inotify support in Emacs to for example enhance
    dired. When a directory being monitored by dired changes, dired could be
    notified and refresh the view automatically. W32 has a similar feature.

Would this mean that all changes in the file system
would be reflected immediately in Dired buffers?
That could be a very nice feature.
But it could also be a pain in the neck to have these changes occur
while you're moving around in the Dired buffer and making changes.
