[Support-mirrors] rsync pull options

Hi all -

Since there's a lot of rsync stuff going on now, we might want to settle
on the "best" options to invoke rysnc with to minimize load on RubyForge
computation and bandwidth-wise.  

For example, is anyone using the "--whole-file" option?  From the rsync
docs, that option lets rsync "copy files whole (without rsync
algorithm)".  Sounds like that might be more efficient for what we're
doing... anyone familiar with the effect of that?
