new tail-mode

I find myself repeatedly reverting some buffers as they grow.  This is a
nuisance and means font-locking starts from scratch, often enough for just
one extra line in a 100kb buffer :-(

My mode

does the same thing as tail -f for the file some buffer is visiting.  You can
even modify the buffer, but if you then save it, tail-mode is turned off.

This is the third release adding (some time ago but unannounced) an entry in
the mode line's minor mode menu, and now automatic turning off of this mode if
the file stops growing.  That happens by default two hours after the last

If there is any interest in adding this to Emacs, let me and
address@hidden hear it.
