[sclug] rsync-like way of updating destination with newer files?

I've been setting up my laptop so that my home directory on it is a 
subset of my homedir on my main desktop machine. Straightforward enough 
with rsync.

However I want, when I've altered or added files on the laptop, that I 
can automatically copy them back to the desktop. My first thought was 
rsync again, but this will restore older copies of files I've modified 
on the desktop since I last synced the two machines. This is not what I 
want :-)

I'd have thought it was a common-enough requirement that there'd be some 
tool to do it, but can't think what. Anyone know of anything ready-rolled?
