a quite descent implementation of DFSR client side in my dfs-r branch

doing the job of putting the file in the target directory as it's not super
time critical and it should save a lot of time by not having to write lot
of boiler plate code.

Inotify, http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inotify, to populate the database?

That's why the first part of the implementation will be writing a tool that
looks for file/directory change events and assign a frstrans_Update
structure (plan is to store it in a a tdb database with the gvsn as the key
and the structure as  the data).
