If you go this route, boot with a Live DVD and make a tarball, or use "star" to make an SELinux aware tarball. That way, you have a copy to store, label, and unpack into a chroot cage and edit and propagate elsewhere, as needed. Rsync can be efficient, but transmitting and uncompressing a tarball is *much faster*. Put it in the swap partition temporarily, if you need to.
