@4ad would like fsnotify to support FEN on Solaris.

While each file & directory requires an event source, the limits are much higher than kqueue:

The default limit is 64k event sources per event port per process.
The default limit for the number of event sources per system is
2^31.

The default limit for the number of event ports per process is 8k.
The default limit for the number of event ports per system is 64k.

For me personally, my first step would be to get Vagrant setup with a Solaris box with Go installed. Preferably via https://github.com/nathany/vagrant-gopher.

@4ad Amit (@amitkris) is currently working on FEN support. Would you be willing to review his pull request when it is ready?
