Konqueror does that but I guess it uses some event handler installed in DCOP
server or something like that. But I have noticed it reflecting changes made
with xfig etc. So it must have something.

Of course it's *much* slower for a typical server. Something like 3-4 times a
second. Enough for desktop....
