Oooh, nice one, thanks! :)
I wonder if the "unison-gtk" folks ever talked
to the "dirdiff" folks...
In unison, it'd be nice to be able to take a
quick look-see sometimes, to figure out what
actually changed in the files (the way dirdiff
shows when you double-click on it).
unison works nicely across ssh, that's
why I tend to use it a lot for syncing
directory trees (at the time, it seemed
easier to pick up and understand than rsync).
