FileWatcher class Null safety

Watches a file and emits WatchEvents when the file has changed.

Note that since each watcher only watches a single file, it will only emit ChangeType.MODIFY events, except when the file is deleted at which point it will emit a single ChangeType.REMOVE event and then close the stream.

If the file is deleted and quickly replaced (when a new file is moved in its place, for example) this will emit a ChangeType.MODIFY event.
