Could Gnus set up notifications against a directory (Maildir or nnml)?
Then it wouldn't have to scan the directory to find out what files have
been added or deleted.

Another possible use case is that `dired' and `vc-dir' could autoupdate
so you don't have to hit `g' to refresh.

A buffer for a VC-controlled file, e.g. with Git, could listen for
notifications on the directory and notice when the current branch or
other information change and at least update the modeline.

I hope these are interesting :)
