:> Well... technically, rsync attempts to only copy the parts that have

:yes, it splits each file into small(er) chunks. each of them gets a hash.
:when one of those hashes on the remote host is different from yours, it
:downloads only this chunk.
:it gets really fast and uses low bandwidth.
:i regard rsync as a really nice piece of work.

    This is all good information.  I am convinced (but then again, I already
    said it should go in :-)).

    Guys, I really need to work on the VFS code so I am going to beg-off the
    sysinstall thread for the remainder of the week!  I am at the point
    where I am now replacing directory vnode references with namecache
    references and I can say this is pretty hairy stuff :-)
