Well at some point you need a protocol, otherwise your mirror is this "dumb" thing we cannot garantee to be a reliable thing.

well, I think we need more than a rsync script at some point.
The question is if you want a push or pull mechanism. z3c.pypimirror implements the pull implementation and performs an incremental update in the sense of rsync in a reliable way.
