Re: Portable Ogg Vorbis player

Two questions, probably based on my ignorance of the subtleties of rsync
or of the filesystem on this device.

1. Why `--size-only'?  Does the player's filesystem do something screwy
to timestamps?

2. Why all the `--include'/`--exclude' arguments?  What is there that
you _don't_ want to rsync? 

It just seems like `rsync -vr ~/music /usbkey' should do the job...
