> Basically what would happen is that once the client has sent
the parameters to the receiver, both will start loading all matching files in
order to get timestamps/checksums ready for comparison. As soon as the first
file-list segment is ready the client will send it. Hopefully by the time it
does the server already has a full set of file-data in the same basic order to
compare against, allowing it to rapidly detect changed, deleted or new files.

Didn't you just basically describe the incremental file transfer already
implemented by rsync?
