This strikes me as something that needs a perl module... anyone feeling
particularly bored and like playing with XS?

I was *sure* something like this was already on CPAN[1]. H. I still
don't really see what advantages having this in Perl would give

Ones where (a) one doesn't want to shell out and create an extra process
or (b) one has control over the perl environment but not over the
general system to install rsync.
