Looking at getbinpkg.py, I see that BINPKGs can be retrieved using
http/s s/ftp. I'm wondering about rsync, as it is mostly supported
across portage (and also in layman). Is there some design reasoning
behind this lack of support, or is it that no-one has yet gotten around
to implement it?

I'm raising the question because I'm implementing a private repository
and would prefer not to service it via http if I don't have to. Right
now, the only feature which is blocking me is this lack of support for
binary packages.
