Do not use --checksum.  It has an extremely limited use case.  Normally
it is much slower than simply re-copying everything.  --checksum means
checksum every file on both ends (even files that only exist on one end)
before doing anything else even if doing so causes a timeout failure.
--checksum is the only part of rsync stupid enough to leave one end idle
potentially for hours.
