Rework folder size updates/caching #41

Folder sizes got broken through recent changes, and this gives me an opportunity to rework the model for it. I have the following in mind for it:

  • On startup, do a full du on the file tree, store every folder and its size in memory.
  • When a watcher updates, start another du on the affected folder, but make sure to not run more than one du at once, and not too often, too, as it can get pretty resource intensive, depending on the number of files.

Recycling issue for recent breakage. I'll most likely have a look at this tomorrow.
