Thanks for the feedback.
I've turned every i18n into a i18nc, and added a comment to the .desktop
file, I hope that's all of it.

Yes, adding support for watching multiple partitions is the one remaining
item on my todo list.
Although if you don't have separate partitions, watching your /home will
work for /var/tmp too :)

I didn't have time to do it yet, but decided to submit the current code that
is tested and working nicely because of the upcoming soft feature freeze,
and probably delay adding that feature for 4.6.
Also, this way openSUSE, Kubuntu and other distros that already carry this
code or the old patch can start using the upstream version.
