[RC5] request

I would like to request a new feature for the new clients. Would it be
possible to check for the presence of a flush.now file ? Similar to the
exitrc5.now file. We don't really have to check every few seconds for the
presence of that file, only when we're writing a finished block to the buffer.

This would make it a lot easier to force remote clients to flush their
buffers (you can't always send a signal, or flush thru the commandline)
Also useful when they share their input-files. And it would be easy to
write a script which create that file at a certain time (to force a general
flush for instance).
