If you are sending over a fast network, using -W (--whole-file) will
save you CPU (and disk I/O).  In addition (or alternately), if you're
using an encrypted transport (such as ssh), try switching it to a faster
cipher (e.g. "-e ssh -c arcfour") or use an unencrypted transport (such
as rsh or a direct rsync daemon setup).
