Valid concern. However, my server handles less than 20 small domains and is 
consistently at a very light load. Given this load, and given that we are 
not likely to have more than 50 or so mirrors for RULE (optimistically 
speaking), the server can easily handle the rsync transactions. If/when 
this grows out of proportion, we'll be so happy that I'll be glad to set up 
a more powerful server then. :-)
