have a file in the IDE which comes from a symlink folder
externally change the file => the file is notified by its real path to the watcher, but the watcher doesn't propagate the event because there is no FO instance (only the symlink instance exists)
Let's pretend this is not the common case (althrough in case of PHP one cannot be really sure) and lower the priority.
Anyway the only way to do something with this is to have the symlink detection inside the masterfs. Tomáš already has one issue that would need the symlink detection to be moved from parsing.api to masterfs, so adding him to CC.
