--- Comment #8 from Chip Schweiss <chip at innovates.com> ---
I would argue that optionally all directory scanning should be made parallel.  
Modern file systems perform best when request queues are kept full.  The
current mode of rsync scanning directories does nothing to take advantage of

I currently use scripts to split a couple dozen or so rsync jobs in to
literally 100's of jobs.   This reduces execution time from what would be days
to a couple hours every night.   There are lots of scripts like this appearing
on the net because the current state of rsync is inadequate.  

This ticket could reasonably combined with 5124.
