Note that the rsync+ functionality as currently present in CVS does not work;
I sent a final patch to Martin Pool for review that makes it work properly (my
colleague says he's had no problems so far). Hopefully it will make it into
the next stable release.

mrsync looks very interesting, too. It's always nice to have more options to
choose from.
