I've adapted the doc a little bit, see in Tramp CVS.

Implementation of a local file cache is still postponed; it would help
only for large files, which might result in disk space problems etc.

When GNU Emacs 23 is released, I will ask on emacs-devel, whether it is
possible to add a file name handler for recursive copying (in XEmacs, it
exists). This should boost rsync based copying.

Best regards, Michael.
