	Yes, rsync (the software) is free software, but we were talking about
rsync.net, an online backup firm.

	To clarify, I don't want someone to host a rsync server for me. I
want something like Dropbox: transparent and immediate synchronization of a
folder (or folders), transmitting only the differences in files, not the
whole files. That's why I said "a FUSE filesystem": it'd be like sshfs, but
using rsync as backend.

	There's nothing like that in the Open Source world. Trust me,
I've searched :-) (though I'd be very happy to be proven wrong!)
