One test build later, no it isn't. If Gnome VFS can use the kernel 
inotify directly then Gamin and FAM are superfluous. I can untar 
something onto my desktop and it shows up straight away. cd into the 
folder and run configure and if I watch the folder with Nautilus the 
files jig about as things are created and removed, no need to click Reload.
