I can't seem to find the line you quote in the docs. If I'd had to guess I'd say they're probably referring to the old_* fields in the delta object, which let you compare the values before and after the change.

Why don't you just query the files directly and only add them to the monitor if the mtime is fine? You have the filename, so you can just do a stat on it directly, can't you?
