- Would you care to explain how the scan works, or should I read the
source code? Specifically, I'm curious about what areas under the
source argument(s) are scanned at what time. Also, does the
incremental scan rule out "file has vanished" warnings?
- I would recommend renaming incremental -> flist_incremental so
people don't confuse it with !whole_file .
