I don't think that rsync could do that, but there are chances...

Some years ago, I hacked a small preload library to wrap all the usual
file-changing syscalls and replicating them over the net to a
different box. That box doesn't have anything running except the
data-accepting daemon matching that preload lib.

Unfortunately, that lib got lost (commercially written) and wasn't
ever ment to be open-sourced. However, the idea is there and it wasn't
all that hard to implement it.

Maybe a better aproach would be to just omit the receiving daemon and
use the NFS protocol instead. Maybe using FUSE these days instead of a
preload lib would also be a nice imprevement...
