I once did some tests with rsyncing tar files rather than individual files,
see http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=10108 The conclusion was that
using tar archives gave around 85%-90% improvement for general sources (think
rsyncing distfiles) and 35% improvement for the portage tree. Of course
theres no fundamental reason for this, messing about with rsync options
(block size, etc.) might give similar improvements.
