No. I looked at dlang-libevent (which is packaged on Debian) and dlang-
libev (which is not packaged for Debian) and realised I don't need
another full on event loop in this application. I really do just need a
seemingly infinite loop alternately testing one fd for readability with
a timeout and then a receiveTimeout on the input channel of the thread.
To do anything else is to have too much infrastructure doing nothing.

The problem is going to be that DInotify isn't going to let me get at
the file descripter to sue with select, poll, or epoll.
