Dear rsync developers,

The purpose of this note is to inquire about your collective interest
in optimizing rsync for certain uses, particularly atomic,
unidirectional transfers with few or single writer and many, often
very many, readers.

After studying the requirements and the documentation on I
have reached the tentative conclusion that serious improvements can be
obtained with a few small tweaks and one medium-sized internal change.

Is this an area of interest to you?

Thanks for any information or suggestions,
