    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 ;)
