I'd like to be able to offer rsync from there as well, but there are a
few challenges that need resolved first. For the binary content cache,
we can likely run the rsync instance from the backup machine so there is
no network load on the production box. For the git repos its a bit
harder since there are private or working-in-progress repos in there as
well, and we need to find a way to mask those out.

Certainly worth trying to get to.
