We'd have to start a new daemon for each directory, right?
So we'd need a hash table mapping directory FDs to info about
each daemon.

There's also the issue of signal safety, which we'd need to
think about regardless of whether we use a daemon.

I dunno, this solution initially sounds nice (it had already
occurred to me before this discussion), but given that we're
only talking about systems with low-quality libraries, and
given that any solution will be pretty hard to test, I'm
inclined to think that going with subprocesses would be more
trouble than it's worth.
