That's what my friend said!  rsync is pretty cool and I use it lots for
keeping directories in sync or transferring whole directory trees, I've
even convinced my Window's collegues to use the cygwin version of rsync
and now it's part of some of the maintenance scripts in our products.
It was a tremendous speed up when trying to roll out a new build of our
software (~2GB) to multiple (30+) Windows machines simultaneously.
