Its trickier as file/ftp etc components rely on files. So if suddenly
its a directory, then many of the options do not apply for noop /
delete / move / read locks / and whatnot.
And the 99,98% use-case is for people to work with the files.

If you want to monitor for directory creations then use some api from
java. Java 7 has nio2 which has better api for that.
