combining rdiff with inotify

peter-2
hi,


backing up my home directory is very ineffective, lots of small files
and not so many changes.
it would be much nicer if rdiff-backup uses inotify or something in that
direction to only look at files that were accessed.

i did not find what i was looking for with google, is there something
like that out there?


would it be possible to backup /home/myuser with rdiff-backup once and
then later only run
rdiff-backup --include-globbing-filelist somefile

somefile being the file listing all the changed files that were watched
by the kernel.
or would that confuse rdiff-backup?


greetings
