As I recall the reason why I stopped looking at it earlier was that it
only did push type synching (and as I am outside the firewall it
didn't really solve my problem). I get the impression that now will
allow a pull synching  as well so that I can from inside the firewall
synch to a site outside the firewall?

from paradigm to paradigm.

Yes they are scattered around.

What I would like to do is send a file (zexp like?) that just had the
various required  bits in it with an implied hierarchy and have the
import take care of the distribution to match the files/hierarchy. I
guess nothing like that exists?
