querying the ext3 journal

I'm not sure if this question makes sense, but here goes.  We have the need
to periodically check for newly created/modified files in a rather elaborate
and well populated directory structure.  I don't believe that simply walking
the directory and checking stat's is the answer, given that I need a process
that will impose minimal performance degredation on the system.  Would it be
possible to query the journal itself for these changes?  Is there an API (or
better yet, an app) to do so?

Direct replies would be welcomed.  

Thanks in advance for any assistance on this,
