But not rsync, which I use whenever I can for large downloads due to
errors creeping in for some reason over my noisy phone line and freqent
line drops (and susequent redials by pppd).
Such a multi-protocol proxy server doesn't need to do any caching, it
just needs to put a variable delay on the outgoing ACKs that trigger
the next download block on ftp and rsync protocols, variable on whether
there's an active http connection.
