We don't have to replace a bunch of existing watches
with identical new ones.  On Linux with Linux::Inotify2
installed, this avoids a storm of inotify_add_watch(2)
and inotify_rm_watch(2) syscalls on SIGHUP with -imapd
and "-extindex --watch"

Addendum: this seems to fix missed wakeups after SIGHUP with
many (50K) inboxes, I'm not sure if there's some other threshold
that's missing or if there's a bug somewhere else...
