To be honest it's annoying before, I just endure it.
In any case, there is always the button to re-read the contents of the
file. And frequent notifications annoying once again.

Imagine that-be if each database when showing query result notified
that visible data are not relevant.

First it would be very costly in terms of resources.
Second on the tables with frequents inserts notifications will be blinks.

In general, I understand that I am not convincing.
But the editing files is not a "chat" and not needed online here.
