Excuse me but I lost the first mail, so I'll quote here.

There's also the possibility to add "ntfs change journal"[1] support to 
KDirWatch. Unfortunately this feature is supported only on ntfs file system 
(no fat support), but I think it should be useful to support it.

Since I'm going to add this feature inside Strigi, I can also update KDirWatch 
(as I've done some times ago with another feature).

Let me know.
