You did not specifically mention it: compression (-z) would probably
help more than anything. Otherwise, you could do something like:
Have a file (ie filelist.txt) that contains the filename (with relative
paths), one file per line.
rsync -rRWz `cat filelist.txt` user at hostname::module
The only limitation to this is if you have a large file list you may get
a shell error.
It has already been suggested in this list, as well as by myself in the
rsync wishlist for a new option to specify a file that has a list of
files to be transferred.
