That doesn't seem to deal with older files though, which is most of
them, at least as far as I can tell. Most of the files now on the "new"
server are newer than the ones coming off the original as I've shunted
them around with a mix of tar and rsync's so all my timestamps and
permissions are a mess.

Any chance of an example? I'm not really sure how this would work.
rsync --just-perms --everything old new: would be awesome :)
