Do you mean this one? It's mentioned at Kenneth E. Harkers page:

Mobile Update Daemon

This is a drop-in replacement for the standard "update" daemon 
that is specially tailored for notebooks to reduce 
unnecessary hard disk spin-ups. 

Didn't look up the 'sync' man pages, wether there is
some tailoring possible. Also I'm not sure wether
this is a good solution. AFAIK there has been some
discussion in the mailing lists. But unfortenately
the laptop lists don't seem to be archived :(

If we think this program is worth to be packaged. I 
can contact the developers or try to package it by myself.
But this maybe a to big task for me. I think it requires
some more hardware knowledge. So if you like to do the job ...
