IIRC, it was driven by you to let all handlers behave like directory
monitors. The kqueue case came later, and it is the only exception as of
today.

II also RC, there was the idea to offer another function, which returns
the type of a monitor, being a file monitor or a directory monitor. This
idea was given up after all monitors were forced to behave like a
directory monitor; prior the existence of kqueue. Maybe we shall rethink
about this idea? Is this of practical use?

Best regards, Michael.
