Thanks for updating the patches to ensure that the count isn't updated
after the events have been retrieved. The approach in Version2B is
probably better - as I mentioned in the previous mail, it will likely be
a bit more efficient for the case that the user falls very behind, and
there is a lot of activity, meaning many files being modified at around
the same time that files are being created and deleted.
BTW, did you look at that link I sent you on the contributor agreement?

Modifiers are just an extension for the future so that we have a way to
change how objects are registered. The API doesn't currently define any
standard modifiers but you'll find two provider specific modifiers in
the implementation. The modifier for the "sensitivity level" that you
found is only interesting to the polling implementation (it is ignored
by the other watch service implementations). If directories aren't
polled very frequently then it's a bit like merging events although I'm
not sure that it's worth adding a new modifier for this.
