+Summary: FileSystemWatcher does not deal intelligently with SymLinks
+When watching a file which happens to be a symbolic link, changes to the
+linked file are not being reported.
+It would be nice if a file could be replaced by a symlink and everything
+worked the same way as before. Right now, this is not case. IMHO
+FileSystemWatcher should detect that it's dealing with a symlink and watch
+both the symlink file as well as the linked file.
