I'm afraid I don't quite understand what you mean by "using rsync for
checking in files".  The only thing that monotone does that is similar
to rsync is our "netsync" protocol for transmitting changes, and
netsync is much more efficient than rsync.  So I don't know why we
would want to use rsync for anything.

So let us espouse a less contested notion of truth and falsehood, even
if it is philosophically debatable (if we listen to philosophers, we
must debate everything, and there would be no end to the discussion).
