I should add that one difference between libinotify-kqueue and native
GNU/Linux inotify is that libinotify uses a separate worker-thread.
This is a difference that can become visible sometimes (at least in the
current implementation), e.g., the worker thread doesn't block most
signals, so the effect of signal handlers can be delayed until control
returns to the main thread.
