How is this better/different to incron(d) [1]?

Well, for me, killer features was (compared to incrond):
  * chain handlers (one event may have multiple handlers, which 
executes untill one returns zero code)
  * built-in filtering support:
    * file extension
    * mime-type
    * filename regexps
  * automatically watch newly created directories
  * written in pure c (instead c++)

All this, except last two may be implemented inside event handler, but 
I'm quite lazy to reinvent wheels. :-)
