Use Watchman to speed up Git by orders on magnitude

Newer versions of git support Watchman (https://github.com/facebook/watchman), which vastly improves the speed of local Git background operations. Would be awesome if SmartGit dealt with setting it up for repos.

Hi Scott, I'm unsure how this could help SmartGit. We already are using a file watcher since ages, but SmartGit does not simply invoke "git status".
