> Rsync was originally written when memory was scarce, CPUs were slow and bandwidth was small. Nowadays, it doesn't necessarily make sense to write software with these assumptions in mind.

Again, there is no reason not to use rsync on mobile and embedded systems. In fact this is where it's the most useful since this is basically the same problem that rsync was designed for and is solving.

The reason why rsync (and git, and others...) rock is because they are one of very few network tools which actually understood all this:

Most of the other networking tools suck because they don't.
