Once again, the issue of the giant pre-3.0 rsyncs that backuppc
causes to form has come up, but this time I'm being paid to fix it,

backuppc simply spawn a new remote rsync for each top-level subdir
of each share? (or perhaps a number of levels down to do this for
If that doesn't sound crazy, does anyone know which bit of code I
should poke at?
Would the maintainer(s) accept a patch for this? I hate maintaining
my own patches.
