I'm not sure what this has to do with the subversion mail list, but I
think you are underestimating what rsync does. When files are changed,
it uses a block-checksum comparison technique to identify and only
transmit the changed blocks. If you use the -v option with rsync it
will mention all the changed filenames but, depending on the nature of
the change, it will be efficient about sending the differences and
reconstructing the files.
