I'm (very slowly) working on a kioslave for rsync. At this stage I'm just
exec()ing the rsync binary. If you want to know how far I have to go, see:
http://www.cuneata.net/rsync-kio.html for the bad news.
One question that I'm still grappling with is how to handle motd. I have a
very rough heurestic for finding it (everything up to the last blank line is
motd), but I'm not sure how to handle displaying it.
I thought about trying to make it pop-up, but when you are browsing it will
pop-up all the time. The novelty will surely wear off quite quickly...
Alternatively, I could just not worry about it. However that may not make some
server admins too happy, and the idea of throwing away information isn't too
Or a one-time popup (per instance of the using app?)?
Or make it appear across the top of the page?
