Rakep Watch with Listen gem #76

wants to merge 4 commits into

This is a new attempt at the rakep watch functionality, using the Listen gem instead of FSSM, since FSSM has been deprecated in favor of Listen over the last few months. In addition, as requested, I have modified the server to not worry about rebuilding the files on each request. Instead, "rakep server" will start up a non-blocking watcher to rebuild the files as they are changed.

Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

@melindaweathers my PR in #95 will fix the need for this without any extra libraries.

Great! I'll go ahead and close my pull request since it is likely out of date by now anyways.
