In Linux this is very easy to do with inotify:
I'm using it to detect changes in the config file of a game's server.
So I can see how this may be related to games. I think it would
be better as an addon - even though it would be a very small addon and
with no extra dependencies. But it can easily be an addon so
no reason to add it to the core library.
