fam -> file alteration monitor
SGI has implemented this function in kernel >2.4, it is used to be informed
about changes of file or folder. It is widely used in linux (nautilus and all
other file managers)

it could be used for monitoring of files in editor as lazarus does but the code
is much simpler and less intrusive, because hook gets registred in kernel and fs
driver uses it to inform when changes occur

if you need any kind of file monitoring then it should go. Windows part could be
simply made with shell functions
