What if instead of communicating over a socket, the daemon
dumped a file containing all of the lstat information after git
wrote a file? By definition the daemon should know about file writes.
There would be no network communication, which I think would make
things more secure. It would simplify the rendezvous by insisting on
well known locations in $GIT_DIR.
