Hmm. I would've thought the whole point of rsync was to encapsulate
that process, although I can see what you're trying to do. I use rsync
to update my own website from a local copy. Thing is, because of the
way rsync works, you're probably not going to save a whole lot by doing
something like the above instead of rsyncing directly.
Have you considered using CVS for this sort of thing?
Waider. Maybe you could write 'rsync3', in the style of 'diff3'.
