[ale] rsync and big file systems

I've set up rsync in cygwin on an NT machine and it did a terrific job
working with the GNU/Linux peers.  I didn't try and make it a service,
but rather ran it on a schedule.

Something else I thought was cool:  Supposedly it is possible to use 
RSYNC on a NT-based machine.  I wonder how well that works.  Anyone ever

set that up before?
