Talk of monitoring implies something that runs as a task and which
stores the state of the folder and only acts when it notes that the
state has changed. For a lot less effort you could have a utility
that you start yourself, say by doubleclicking on its icon,
that simply filer_runs whatever appropriate stuff it finds in the folder.
But maybe the whole point of what you are looking for is that it
acts automatically without the user having to start it?
