The way that rsync uses hashes isn't at all problematic. If an attacker
has the level of access to be able to introduce hash collisions into
files that you're copying using rsync, then you have bigger problems
than the hash collisions!
In my opinion, rsync isn't a wheel that needs to be reinvented using
LiveCode. :-) However, yes, since rsync is almost entirely constrained
by IO bandwidth, there's no reason that you couldn't rewrite it to be
fast enough using LiveCode.
