If that's the case then it doesn't seem to be very effective if it is working
that way already; what about ahead of time comparisons? For example, if the
first file in the transfer is huge, then rsync should be looking at all the
files after it in order to find out what needs to be transferred next, possibly
generating checksums in advance.

Basically, if the sender is currently sending a file, then does the receiver
continue sending file data in return for the sender to process in advance?
