Subject AW: FTP "Depends" option for size as well as date?
Date Wed, 20 Dec 2006 16:10:45 GMT
The <modified> catches all files which were already selected my 
storing their MD5-hash (other algorithms could be plugged in).
So that could help if you change the timestamp locally.

It does not help if your upload breaks.
