And it seems so obvious in retrospect!  Thanks.

I can envision a wrapper script now that would use 'find' to figure out the
biggest file size in the source tree and figure out a reasonable step function
calling rsync iteratively with --min-size and --max size to emulate something
like this request. 

Depending on the number of steps, the amount of traffic for building file lists
would be far from efficient, so a 1-pass solution would still be great too.
