[ ...discussion about how to react to inotify in dired... ]

While this discussion is interesting and worthwhile, it has no direct
impact on whether or not Emacs would benefit from having
inotify support.

So to answer the original question: yes, I'd be interested to see
a patch that adds support for inotify (and other similar facilities), as
well as another patch that provides a layer on top that tries to
abstract away the details specific to each alternative (inotify,
dumb-polling, you name it...).
