Thanks, Mike.

I got the references of this discussion (Thanks Kamil), and see the actually
this talk is long. Well, I still think it stinks to use rsync for such task,
but the addition of repetitive code for each applications really calls for
more generic implementation underneath them, as some people has commented.

Sorry for bringing this topic up again (somehow I searched the wrong
places), but it would be nice to find a solution that could work for
everything. We could just leave "disabled" by default, if the performance is
at hand.

Thank you all for the comments.
