I don't think there is a way to specify which files triggered the file
trigger is there?

Basically we'd need to know the basename of the file that changed, also
there are times when it has to be excluded (e.g. some files should not
be run except at boot).

For now I've been adding the relevant calls to the rpms that need them.
It's pretty simple, but would be nice it it wasn't needed. It could, in
most cases, be combined with %_post_service, but again, I'm not sure
it's worth the hassle as there will always be cases where it needs to
happen outside of this structure too.
