Anyone here interested in efficient proxying should check out Andrew's
work.  It's be neat to see some real-world data with these ideas.

Subject: rsync in HTTP

Some of you may remember me mentioning a project I'm been working on
for a while to build rsync into HTTP. Peter Barker and I have written
up a brief paper on the idea and we have also built a working
prototype that is getting quite good results.

If any of you are interested you can read the paper at 

The code is still _very_ experimental, comes with no docs and is not
at all meant for production use, but if you want to take a look at it
then you should be able to get it via anonymous cvs using the module
name "rproxy". See for cvs access details.

Cheers, Tridge
