------- Additional Comments From wayned at samba.org  2005-02-13 22:17 -------
Due to the current --inplace option having the potential to be very inefficient
(the man page specifies that it really only works well with appended data or
record-oriented changes), it would probably be a bad idea to have the largest
file(s) in the transfer become the least efficient in their updates.

The current CVS has an option that can set a maximum size for a file to
transfer: --max-size=1g (for instance).  That can at least be used to avoid
overflowing the disk.  You could then use --temp-dir (pointing at a drive with
more free space) to update any remaining files (leaving off the --max-size
option for a second pass).  Not ideal, certainly, but not too bad either.
