FAM/Gamin should be the best choice because:
- it's available on most unix systems
- uses low level monitoring tools when available (such inotify)
- there's no resource waste: suppose you have n programs watching the same 
dir. With inotify there'll be n inotify's wd objects, instead with fam/gamin 
(always using inotify as low-level facility) there'll be just 1 wd. Since 
inotify premits 8192 watches per user, with FAM/Gamin you wont waste this 
valuable resource
