seems like they've implemented something similiar TCP on top of UDP which does a seriously better job (the information they provide points in that direction).
I'm wondering whether MTP is simply a better stream protocol (so that rsync, could be run over an MTP connection and probably perform similarly to syncdat) or to what extent it relies on the parallelizability of a large file transfer to contain the effects of packet loss. There's some information at http://www.dataexpedition.com/downloads/DEI-MTP-Info.pdf and http://www.patentstorm.us/patents/7158479-claims.html .
