This is a streaming glob watcher, for instance a directory tailer -- poll a directory read
the data from new files as they show up. To get this right in a streaming pipeline requires
careful management of timestamps and watermarks -- e.g., a filename or other metadata should
reflect a timestamp earlier than any records in it, so that we are able to provide accurate
lower bounds on output timestamp.
