Would it be possible to have a watch that instructs a parent to watch its
children? Perhaps that is what you are saying here... If so, that would
be a very reasonable action.

What is the limiting aspect that would not allow you to watch deeper than
just 1 set of children? Obviously, this could be set up with some kind of
script or automation on the user's behalf if its not possible, but I can see
Mont's request being a very common one.
