It *could* be possible to rewrite the server (and probably have to
implement a local file system suitable for putting the files on it), so
that the server *would* be able to notice the changes. That's why I wrote
"hardly" instead of "absolutely not".

While the meaning is very much the same :-)

Such a project would be far away from being a reasonable one, wouldn't it?
