How about letting file-watch return a "file-watcher" which you then need
to pass to file-unwatch?  This "file-watcher" could be any kind of Elisp
data you find convenient for this.  You may decide to provide no other
operation than file-unwatch, but you could also decide to provided
additional operations such as changing the callback (I'm not saying
that would necessarily be a good idea, tho, but maybe other operations
would be handy).
