BSD's kqueue() mechanism allows processes to wait on filesystem change events,
such as new data being written to a file, without consuming any CPU. That's a
pretty desirable feature.

We can do the same, using an auxiliary socket/fifo/namedpipe. When slapd starts,
it can open the socket. Whenever it writes to the replog, it can write a single
byte to the socket. When slurpd starts, it can block on a read from the socket.
No more polling-interval needed. I guess we can use a polling-interval to detect
the socket if it doesn't exist or isn't readable (because slapd isn't running
