Hm, but rsync doesn't work well if files move, does it? You'll have to
modify the dir structure yourself.

BTW, I noticed the other day that unison handles renamed files/moved
files gracefully. unison is a kind of two-way rsync intended to be
used for syncing e.g. a laptop and a desktop machine. It uses the
rsync algorithm internally. But I don't think it could be used for
mirroring CD images. :-/
