I am wondering if would be possible (and a good idea) to implement
'get range' request in rsync, similar to --range option of curl (for http
and ftp protocols), perhaps limited to a single file operation, with both
source and destination files specified as parameters to rsync client.
It would be beneficial for those lack-of-disk-space situations, or when
just a fragment of large files is needed (e.g. to pick one file from an
CD or DVD (or BD?) iso image).
Would that require changes to rsync protocol and/or rsync server code?
