I'm looking at qfilesystemwatcher.
It's not possible to configure what events it watches. For example:

when watching a directory and an event happens on an entry in this
directory: it's changed.
The size for example is changed. qfilesystemwatcher doe not give this
information: it only signals that the "something" has been changed in
the directory.

This means that you have to scan through the directory and compare
each file one by one.
FS Watches to watch a whole directory are used a lot, but it should
give more information about the event (name of entry, and a mask,
simular to inotify).

Is this planned?
