Paul, yes you're right, files have to be deleted on by one, but perhaps Rsync
overhead could be skipped.

I made some tests, I created a directory with 300k files in it.
I deleted it with Rsync, and with rm command.
I did this test several times.
On my server, it took about 20 seconds with rm, about 40 seconds with Rsync.

Of course this is just a test example, each of the top directories of my
production backup are much bigger, impact is then more important.
