I have to disagree with you here stefan, the service runs at the background
doing virtually nothing, and taking up almost zero resources. The
TortoiseReparseService (TPS) wakes up only when folders that it set up
reparse points for are touched. And all it does then is propagate the status
information upwards, and only if the relevent entity had its status changed.
I.e., if you have a file 10 levels deep changed for the first time (relative
to the base) the change will update every directory's status on the way up.
However, the next time the file is changed (unless it was reverted (which
requires drastic measures - like bidirectional bookkeeping), there is no
need to do anything. If another file in the same directory has changed,
there is no need to change anything but the currents directory's status, as
the rest of the path up has already changed.
