OK, I have done what whoever changed the wiki page should have done, I
have created a new wiki page for the osync way and rolled the original
page back to the unison way of doing things.

I will now edit the osync page to correct a few things that need
changing (broken link, conf variable name changes etc).

I will also discuss the unison page with Louis Van Belle, I believe he
is still using this method and may have some input on what, if anything,
that needs changing.
