rsync support has been on the TODO list for more than 9 years. All it needs is someone who cares enough to actually implement it!

It would be nice if curl would support the rsync protocol in a basic version without delta-sync. The usecase is where a list of files is represented by URLs which may be http://, ftp:// or rsync:// and a simple retrieval is needed. At the moment a switch in the enclosing code is needed to handle rsync as special case, acquire a temp file name and pull the contents from that tempfile instead of just curling the contents to stdout. Support for authentication would still be needed.
