What's up with md5-cache?

Every syn has to pull the entire md5-cache hierarchy over again, as if
some daemon re-creates every file every day, rather than only re-writing
those files which need updates and adding/removing those which need that.

Even if only the files metatdata changes, that still adds a significant
cost to an rsync.

It is important that md5-cache files which do not require change be left
alone.

Not everyone has gobs of network bandwidth available.
