Hmmm... If I'm going to do that, I have to put the fsinfo-core branch first
otherwise you can't actually retrieve the unique ID - and thus won't be able
to make sense of the notification record. Such a rearrangement might make
sense anyway since Ian and Karel have been primarily concentrating on fsinfo
and only more recently started adding notification support.
