I can't require nor expect those copying the files into the share folder to
do this.  No, they will simply be grabbing a set of image files from one
network share and drag them into this Samba share, as is.  I'm not worried
with what happens when PHP picks it up (name changes, moving to a diff
folder, etc., etc.)  I'm only concerned with the first step ... picking up
the file only *after* it's done copying.

I can run PHP as a timed crontask, but I need to figure out a safe way for
it to either grab a file or leave it alone because it's not done yet.
