Oh - but the file format has changed, and the latest jigdo files are
no longer readable by jigdo-port! :-( I *really* want to avoid having
to update two different programs whenever I make a change, so I have
no plans to fix jigdo-port.
[Standard rant: C++ *is* portable, and the standard has been out for 3
years - it's about time everybody caught up with it! Maybe gcc is
boot-strappable on AIX... But I realize that would be quite a lot of
work just to compile jigdo-file. :-( ]

Should be possible. However, the template files include an md5sum of
the images, which is checked by jigdo; if jigdo says that the file has
been regenerated OK, it *is* OK and no extra rsync run is necessary.
OTOH, it might make sense to fall back to rsync if not all of the
parts in an image could be retrieved. I could add that to the script.
