  Description     : cron like daemon which handles filesystem events

 incron is an "inotify cron" system. It works like the regular
 cron but is driven by filesystem events instead of time periods.
 It contains two programs, a daemon called "incrond" (analogous
 to crond) and a table manipulator "incrontab" (like "crontab").
 incron use Linux Kernel inotify syscalls.
 like cron, each user can edit its own incron tables.
 incron can be use to :
  - notifying programs (e.g. server daemons) about changes in configuration
  - guarding changes in critical files (with their eventual recovery)
  - file usage monitoring, statistics
  - automatic on-crash cleanup
  - automatic on-change backup or versioning
  - new mail notification (for maildir)
  - server upload notification
  - installation management (outside packaging systems)
  - ..and many others
