I've been running into a similar issue with monitoring
child processes; see Bug#14474.  A couple of dumb questions:

Should the issues of file-change and process-change notifications
be combined, or kept separate?

Would it make sense, at the low level, for Emacs to rely on the
glib primitives in child-process area?  I worry about race
conditions (SIGCHLD arriving in the middle of memory allocation,
that sort of thing).
