>> For another binary, I would have to package fam and SGI::FAM, this is

>> "moving bin/psycfilemonitor to contrib until somebody upgrades it to use
>> inotify instead of fam". No one uses this binary currently, so it can be
>> left where it is and will be updated in time.

Release version 1.1 of Net::PSYC is out, using the zip archive of it for
now. Patches rebased on master.
