SInce there is no method of manually adding files to the minidlna library, and some libraries can consist of thousands of files, taking a lot of load to update...

For FreeNAS there doesn't seem to be compatible inotify support, hence everyone using FreeNAS with the minidlna plugin must restart the server manually to get it to add new files.

If we switched to using libevent there would be much better support for the automated library updating on all operating systems. Any thoughts on this?
