I don't think thats very useful, for svn you'll have to watch a lot of
dirs and then you'll have to reload status info on all files of all dirs
that changed. With .git you might get notifications when unrelated
things changed (the config file, creating a new remote etc.) and would
cause additional status-updates which don't show any status-change.
It's all in the mind, ya know.
