Hello Martin,

Thanks for your fast answer to my problem. I am now happy to have a clear 
position from the developer of rsync (though I am not very happy with the 
position itself ;-).

I would like to take a quick look to tis first option you mentioned, before 
I conider the others.

Do you have and can you send me some API-documentation for the flist 
module, which I believe is the one, I have to modify.
