I've implemented a quick shot what's possible just now. If we have a
more general solution, I'm open. Your proposal with a unified API would
do it, but it means we need to unify. Now we have seen in practice first

Since I'm not an inotify expert, I would let the proposal for such an
API to somebody else. I would participate if it comes to practical
details for Tramp implementation.

If support for remote files is desired.

Bes regards, Michael.
