It would have been a simple script with the extension I proposed
("create batch without patching",

Alternatively, you can use librsync's rdiff. That lets you can save the
patch information to a file and then transmit it only if it's not too
large. But then you'll have to sync a single large tar file
(equivalent), and do the file management by yourself.
