--- Comment #1 from Ulrich Sibilller <ulrich.sibiller at atos.net> ---
I go one step further than this: rsync should not only look for a file to
reference in fuzzy mode but also take into account what it transferred
previously. So instead of throwing away any information it gathered for the
first file once it is done it could keep the transfer information and reuse it.
It would then
a) automatically fulfill you request by having the information for the first
iso already
b) not rely on similarity by size and/or name only but on the data itself!

Of course this would increase memory usage but that's something the user can
decide if it is worth or not.
