The different is that copying a live Data.fs is like tracking a moving 
target, a static
copy of the Data.fs is static and rsync knows how to handle static files 
but it does not handle
files that grow or change during the copy phase.  An inconsistent copy of 
the Data.fs is no problem
since Zope will through away the last inconsistent transcation during the 
next startup.
