Actually, that's an option of gnu tail. And it seems quite useful, albeit the
user interface indicates it's clearly an afterthought.
It seems that --max-unchanged-stats and --retry could usefully be grouped
under a "-r" for reopen option. (or -r for retry and -o for reopen to keep
the semantics separate.) When redisplaying, reopening the file and doing an
lseek isn't hard to implement. ..

I do not think it means what you think it means.
