Yup, saw that. It wasn't clear from the docs (still isn't, actually)
that it is smart about uploads, such as:
* preserving mode - it explicitly mentions that you can try preserving
~ utime, if the server supports it, but says nothing about file mode
* only uploading changed or new files, using filesize and date to check
~ (and I notice the server I'm dealing with also supports some sort of
* deleting files on the remote side that are no longer present on the
~ local side.
I'm talking about a fairly large directory (it's a web site) over an
ISDN line, so the "uploading changed files only" is pretty important.
