We've discussed this a while ago, main reason (IIRC) was to achieve
same behaviour for the different libraries.

I cannot find the discussion just now, likely it was in one of the
bugs. The main reason was the w32notify library, which works only
watching directories.

Later on we've added the kqueue library, which works reliably only
watching files. This breaks the unification attempt, but I don't believe
we shall change the behaviour again.
