Having found no mention of Google's Chrome OS in the rsync archives,
nor any useful* pointers via Google, I'm wondering if anyone here
knows of an implementation of rsync client for Chrome OS in normal
(not developer) mode, i.e. as an app or extension.
* It seems that rsync is available in "test" builds of Chrome OS, but
not in normal release builds. As far as I can tell, installing a
"test" build requires putting the device in Developer Mode, which
requires doing a "powerwash," which wipes local storage -- totally
defeating the purpose of installing rsync in the first place.
* rsync is available in Termux, but presumably would only have access
to the Termux container, not to the user's Chrome OS configuration
