I take that back. Even a file manager may very well be interested in moves
that it does itself - most of them have some soft of multi-window view
capability, and if they use dnotify, they might well be using it to keep
the different views coherent.

So yes, a new flag would likely be required.

That said, who actually _uses_ dnotify? The only time dnotify seems to
come up in discussions is when people complain how badly designed it is,
and I don't think I've ever heard anybody say that they use it and
that they liked it ;)
