Sounds very cool.  I'm guessing that a side-effect of all this work the
dry-run option will get the ability to optionally show meta changes that
would happen such as owner/group/perms/timestamp changes?

This was discussed some time back, and is probably still on someones
to-do list.  It sure would be nice to see an accurate list of what will
be updated.  Right now we can assume the additional files listed in a
real run that were not listed in dry-run are meta-data, but we don't
know which are changing before the fact so you can save off the state
info before the run or adjust parameters to exclude them.
