+You will need to have the pywin32_ extensions installed, and at least python 2.6.

+If there's any interest, I'll happily backport or accept patches.

+If what we see here doesn't fit your tastes, you might want to look over at:
+
+http://pypi.python.org/pypi/watcher
+
+That is a python library which provides a similar service, but does it via a 
+proper C extension, and implementing a well-defined, known interface (the
+``FileSystemWatcher`` from C#).
+
+If that library was available when I began writing dirwatch, I probably wouldn't 
+have started. :)  But as it didn't and I did, I offer up dirwatch in case it helps solve, or 
+at least provide a different angle, on any shared problems.
