Not sure what problem you had with rsync -- AFAIK, rsync will do
everything you mentioned -- it can easily do ssh tunneling (use the -e
option I believe). Rsync also does an efficient network copy that sends
only the diffs, even within files. Also, there are definitely clients
for linux and windows (easiest way on windows is to download cygwin).
Not sure about the mac, but I know it'll work on OSX. And all without
the pristine copies :-)

Cheers,
Raman

PS if you want two-way synchro, take a look at Unison -- I have been
very successfully using it across windows and linux machines via ssh. It
also does rsync-like efficient network copies.
