                     14: Create a BSD licensed drop-in replacement for rsync that can handle large
                     15: numbers of files/directories and large files efficiently. The idea would be to
                     16: not scan the filesystem for every client to detect changes that need transfer,
                     17: but rather maintain some database that can be queried (and that also needs
                     18: updating when files are changed on the server). See supservers(8) for some ideas
                     19: of how this could work. Compatibility with existing rsync clients should be
                     20: retained.
