Well..see towards the end of [1]. However this approach is obviously
useless for Java, so you'd have to do something internal, like register
inotify callbacks on the /sys list or the like. Unfortunately that
doesn't work either [2]. Things go downhill from there.
All statically wired thread pools (hi FJ) also suffer from this.

..but we're getting off-topic :)
