What do you expect exactly from a GUI for rsync? Running on what systems and
for what purposes?

As a pet project that I never made public, I've done a Qt3 frontend to *some*
features of rsync, it is designed according to my needs and doesn't allow
setting all rsync options from the GUI. It runs on GNU/Linux and
Windows+cygwin (if you have a Qt3 license, since I did not port it yet to
Qt4), and mostly provides a graphical way to use --include and --exclude,
allows testing before performing backup, log and settings save, etc.
