Right. I was willing to give up the checksumming for my
application. It seems that you could code a --source-filter
patch that would
- compare the source and destination modtimes
- if they differ, then apply the filter to the source file storing
the output in a temp file. compare the temp file checksums
against the remote file checksums and transmit the parts that
This would be better than my --dest-filter patch.
