    Win32: Port Directory Monitoring to New GLocalFileMonitor · 671292bb
    Chun-wei Fan authored
    This WIP patch moves the Windows Directory Monitoring code to the new
    GLocalFileMonitor mechanism, and adds file monitoring in the process.
    
    Progress from previous patch:
    -File renames are now properly supported, but G_FILE_MONITOR_EVENT_MOVED_IN
     and G_FILE_MONITOR_EVENT_MOVED_OUT needs to be investigated, as
     ReadDirectoryChangesW() seems to send FILE_ACTION_REMOVED when a file is
     moved out of a directory.
    -Events are handled for both the long and short (8.3) variants of the
     filenames, and files monitored will report changes when it is changed
     via its short or long filenames.
    
    Things to be done:
    -Perhaps find out about attribute changes in files in a monitored
     directory; if a file is monitored, attribute changes are correctly
     handled.
    -Investigate on G_FILE_MONITOR_EVENT_MOVED_OUT,
     G_FILE_MONITOR_EVENT_MOVED_IN, G_FILE_MONITOR_EVENT_PRE_UNMOUNT,
     G_FILE_MONITOR_EVENT_UNMOUNTED.
    -Investigate on the "boredom" algoritm, and see how we can do it on
     Windows.
