// the ease of implementation it is guaranteed that paths provided via Watch and
// Unwatch methods are absolute and clean.

	// newpath.
	//
	// To modify a watch-point means either to expand or shrink its event set.

	// Tree can want to either relocate, modify or relocate and modify a watch-point
	// via single RecursiveRewatch call.

	// to relocate from oldpath to the newpath first and then change its event set
	// value from oldevent to the newevent. In other words the end result must be
	// a watch-point set on newpath with newevent value of its event set.
