    For changedfiles, essentially a device special that
    reports file operations, e.g.

    OPENW /home/foo/filename
    MKDIR /home/foo/bar
    RENAME /home/foo/bar -> /home/foo/goo

    The userspace deamon reads the operations and files,
    and compares then to regexp rules in the config file
    i.e, for an automatic image converter:

    RULE ^/home/dropbox/*.gif
    SHELL /usr/bin/convert __FILE__ `basename __FILE__

    It also does in process FTP, so you can do poor man's
    replication to a remote machine without the overhead
    of polling.
