Well, there is the patch "patches/time-limit.diff" in the rsync source
tree that adds options to make rsync stop at a certain time or after a
certain time interval. You could compile and use your own copy of rsync
with this patch. Or you could just have your script send a signal to
the rsync process at the appropriate time, which will cause rsync to
clean up and quit.
