Agreed. For starters, IMHO we need just two events:
file-contents-changed, which comprises write, truncate, delete, and
rename operations and fulfills the requirements of autorevert-like
features, and file-metadata-changed, which is what dired-like features

BTW, I would take care of the MSWindows implementation, if nobody beats
me to it.
