 directory changes.  The first "%s" in it will be replaced by
 the name.

   to observe
 QUIET         - suppresses warnings and error messages (but sets
   the return value to allow later diagnostis
 FORMAT        - string to print on exit.

   EXAMPLES

 WaitNotify S:Startup-Sequence

 ;Wait for a change in either startup script and report its name
 WaitNotify S:Startup-Sequence S:User-Startup FMT="%s*N"

 ;Show the first file which changes via More
 More `WaitNotify S:Startup-Sequence S:User-Startup FMT=%s`

 most network filesystems won't support it.
