See the checksum patches and the db patch for some examples that are being
worked on already.  The db one is the one that I'm most fond of, since it has
the potential to support checksum caching, fuzzy matching by checksum, more
efficient renaming etc.  The current patch only supports checksum caching at
the moment, and the sqlite support makes it very lightweight for those that
don't want to stand up a DB server.

I do need to change the db patch into a run-time-loaded library idiom for each
DB type. That would let us integrate db support into the main code w/o bloating
the dependencies for the main rsync package (e.g. the rsync executable is in
the main package with no db dependencies, the sqlite lib is in a separate
sqlite-dependent package, etc.).

If anyone wants to help out in this area, feel free to contact me about what
you're interested in.

I'll resolve this as "works-for-me" just because of the existing meta-data
