pardon me if i'm remembering incorrectly but wasn't there a TriLUG
presentation about using rsync for this purpose? or, perhaps, it was nc*sa.
regardless, attached is a borne shell script that i put together that does a
crude yet effective job of implementing what i think you are looking for.
does the trilug mailing list allow attachments?
