I uploaded an initial implementation of TailFile. Please feel free to try out/test/review
and provide any feedback. We can iterate as necessary.

> It's a very common data ingest situation to want to input text into the system by "tailing"
a file, most commonly log files. Currently we don't have an easy way to do this. 
> A simple processor to tail a file would benefit many users. There would need to be an
option to not just tail a file but pick up where the processor left off if it is interrupted.
