"Auto-synchronizing" for LiveEdit

I just started playing with "LiveEdit" to speed up my client-side development cycle. I think the LiveEdit plugin is awesome, but the main issue I experienced is that, when using the plugin with an external file watcher recompiling my .less files, I have to continually save AND "synchronize" my files with IntelliJ to get the changes to appear in the browser.

I made a really simple plugin to automate this for my own purposes (but it's kind of hacky and I would prefer to see it simply added to the LiveEdit functionality):

Do you think this is somethting that could be added to LiveEdit? Or maybe you're waiting for a move to Java 7 and NIO for this kind of thing?

Thanks,

Kevin
