Inotify based tail

inotail is a replacement for the 'tail' program found in the base installation
of every Linux/UNIX system. It makes use of the inotify infrastructure in
recent versions of the Linux kernel to speed up tailing files in the follow
mode (the '-f' option). Standard tail polls the file every second by default
while inotail listens to special events sent by the kernel through the inotify
API to determine whether a file needs to be reread.

Currently inotail is not fully compatible to neither POSIX or GNU tail but
might be in the future.
