Personally, I think it would be better to use fcntl(F_NOTIFY), then 
fallback to FAM and finally no change notification. BSD can allways 
implement it natively too.

Put it this way: if we believe 90% of Wine users are using Linux, and 
%50 of users have FAM, then it would be logical to use F_NOTIFY instead 
of FAM, so that it works for most users with no effort on their half.
