Are you still using rsync versions < 3.0.0 ? Newer versions do
"incremental transfers", meaning that it's not necessary for rsync to
traverse the complete tree before beginning the transfer; it's now done
per directory. Of course, if all your files are in one directory then it
doesn't give any improvement...
