Ok, let me jot some thoughts donw on this so we have it....
* All monitoring should be done async, without polling. Ie. using signals and
callback, not sleep(5); check_drives();
* I think we can use gio.VolumeMonitor() to listen for connect/disconnect of
volumes. Then we use gio.Volume.get_uuid() as the key in the 'storage' table.
* I have not checked NetworkManager or ConnMan, but I am pretty sure that both
provide some DBus API to get async notifications when the connection goes away
and comes up. We should use the key 'inet' to store the connectivity state in
the 'storage' table.
* All online subjects requiring a connection to be available, should have
their storage attribute set to 'inet'
Implement storage monitor (devices and connectivity)

Status in Zeitgeist Framework: Confirmed
This is a reminder bug.
We need to write a "storage monitor" that manage the various storage mediums we
can have event subjects stored on. The storage monitor should write any changes
back to the 'storage' table in the DB.
What we need to track is connection and disconnections of storage volumes
(probably using gio) - ie. track whether or not files on USB thumb drives are
available or not etc. Also the network connection state should be updated in
the storage table so that we can filter out remote files and website on request.
