Yes. I've got a series of about 20 commits reworking the internals a
bit, and then one patch past that that I still need to break down into
several clean commits.

I think I've got things working now to cleanly detect file deletion. And
the only bug that I *know* is still there is a performance bug, (it's
somehow spending time doing something silly with known messages when it
should just march along and only do real work with new and deleted

Anyway, I hope to have something to actually publish early next
week. Please forgive me for not sharing more as I go along here. The
patches change the storage within the database, so one could be left in
a very unpleasant state if using patches that don't match the database
storage that we'll be using in the end.
