Good, GPL. Interesting, works on 8086 (Borland C 3.1) w/ only 640 kb RAM.   ;-)

Yes, popular, though I admit to never having tried it (yet??).

It's indeed dated from 2003, though, so I guess it could've been in FD
1.0 (2006. But since nothing has come out since FD 1.0 (2006), what'd
you expect?  :-P  Everybody's too busy. Also most people probably
don't need it (or need "full" rsync, maybe, dunno). But anyways, I've
mirrored it to iBiblio for you ("us"?) here:
