No, they've not talked about what they're doing here.  It would be very
interesting to hear their thoughts on a utility that worked better with
large numbers of files.  One thing that I had thought to look into at
some point is a way to monitor the changes for a hierarchy of files at
the OS or driver level (perhaps using inotify?) and thus totally
eliminate the scan looking for changes (for up-to-date mirroring).
