Doesn't it do some kind of versioning too?

As long as you understand that this works like cp (see rsync -W). If
you do this to a 10GB directory tree you'll get 10GB sent across the
network. (Maybe there's a check so that unchanged files won't be sent
based on size/timestamps but changed files are sent entirely.)
