There is an OSX equivalent and it's called FSEvents [1]. It was
introduced in Leopard (OSX 10.5), probably to support Spotlight and
Time Machine (the search and backup apps).

I bet there is a Windows equivalent as well. Anyone knows about it? Sidnei?

Wrapping those services in a platform-independent way would be a
valuable contribution to Python.
