Ah, yes - i did think about pushing the rsync command into a script in the 
default PATH, i'm fine with that.

My goal is not to eradicate git, but to simplify use of the vagrant 
environment.  For example, Maxim and David tend to favor ./gradlew run 
partially because it's one command.  Meanwhile i'd like to remove ./gradlew run 
for a few reasons.  I see 'vagrant provision' as the possible replacement for 
that command.

I'm happy to proceed with setting up a command that does the code sync, but 
i'll be looking for more than that to get to a single command.
