[arch-dev-public] Removing fam from [extra]

I would like to remove fam from [extra].  It is old, uses dnotify rather 
than the better inotify and does not build without lots of patches.  It 
seems the patches we do use create Arch specific issues with log file 
filling (FS#14623).  Finally, gamin does most of the job fam does but 
better and it is currently in the [community] repo.

Any objections?  Also, should I bring gamin to [extra] as a replacement 
or leave it in [community]? I really do not care which....
