    The main problem with rsync that I can see is that it is fairly heavy
    weight on the server, so many servers (including
    have a maximum number of connections set to something pathetically
    small, like say 5 connections.

    I remember Tridge trying to get someone to implement checksum caching
    for rsync servers some 4+ years ago, which would surely help. Did
    that ever get done? If so, convincing the server admins that it's OK
    to up the maximum number of rsync connections would be the next step.
