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.)
