scalar: update technical doc roadmap with FSMonitor support

Update the Scalar roadmap to reflect completion of enabling the built-in
FSMonitor in Scalar.

Note that implementation of 'scalar help' was moved to the final set of
changes to move Scalar out of 'contrib/'. This is due to a dependency on
changes to 'git help', as all changes to the main Git tree *exclusively*
implemented to support Scalar are part of that series.
