 just to throw my hat in here as well -
 i am interested in a solution for EVFILT_USER support.
 there are many apps that would benefit from it.  (there
 are a few more events like directory updates, close,
 and write in freebsd i'd also like to see added.)
 i believe it could live in userspace, and that would be
 strongly preferably, but unless it's actually compatible
 with existing implementations (ie, they just start to
 work without patching beyond "use this freebsd path"),
 it seems not nearly as useful as it should be.
 thanks for working on this.
