I've narrowed it down to the code I want to work on. I haven't been able 
to do much besides integrating some already existing patches due to a 
change of jobs.

You will find that the code is a bit obscure. And it's C.

I have been studying whether to patch Unison instead, to achieve the 
same goals (Unison is written in OCaml). In the meantime, I learned 
about pysync (Python clone of rsync), but I am unsure of its stability. 
And perlsync <>.

If Perlsync is reasonably stable *and* is wire-compatible with rsync as 
people claim, I think that's what I'll work on.
