no. sorry. I must say this:

 We can use rsync on the client site. 
  -> get a rsync-checksum file (use a fix block size)
  -> make the check on the client site and
  -> download the file partly per ftp/http 
  -> make the new file with the old and downloaded parts

With this the server need only extra rsync-checksum files.
