Could RSYNC be implemented fast enough
using only LiveCode scripts?

The way that rsync uses hashes isn't at all problematic. If an attacker has the level of access to be able to introduce hash collisions into files that you're copying using rsync, then you have bigger problems than the hash collisions!

In my opinion, rsync isn't a wheel that needs to be reinvented using LiveCode. :-) However, yes, since rsync is almost entirely constrained by IO bandwidth, there's no reason that you couldn't rewrite it to be fast enough using LiveCode.
