Maintains a local file archive repository

'filewatcher' maintains a local file archive repository. A configuration file details which files and directories to monitor and to whom reports should be delivered. It is useful in situations where there are multiple sysadmins, each of whom should know as soon as possible what changes the other have made. Correcting or rolling back to the previous version is trivial.
