This is excellent!  It should vastly speed up our Linux to Mac
rsync transfers over any of the other available alternatives.

Two questions:

Do you have to have rsync-hfsmode on both the sending and
receiving machines, or will rsync-hfsmode work properly with
a standard rsync install in one direction or the other?

Is there any chance of this being folded into the standard
rsync CVS?
