Replacement for RCP/mirror that has Many More Features

rsync uses the "rsync algorithm" which provides a very fast method for
bringing remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the
differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both
sets of files be present at one of the ends of the link beforehand. At
first glance, this may seem impossible because the calculation of diffs
between two files normally requires local access to both files.
