I needed another file, so I finished the basic work.
Reflecting on the special config needs tho (throttling,
user entertainment [progress info], etc.) maybe not

ought to have worked, but it did not.  All the dd's
with a non-zero "seek" option quit without transferring
any data at all.  The "rsync" solution decided that
since the source file was local, it would read through
the entire file.  Apparently it is not network mount
aware.  Anyway, with a reasonably recent "libopts"
