Yeah I know.... I'll try to stick in the high level, but I'm worried
about dependencies. It makes no sense to have /lib/libkdb.so depending
on libs under /usr/lib.

The 5 minutes I spent reading about inotify made me believe it is a
kernel module, but I couldn't find it, nor the /dev entry, nor the
dmesg messages in the FC2 machine I have close to me right now. Is
this stuff already included in regular distros kernels ?

I'm still studing all of this....
