I'm pretty sure it does, even if I I just discovered
zsync is for distributing single files, so it's not
appropriate here.

I'd be more than happy also with a simple solution
like making the crux.nu server update the
svn repo to a local dir every, say, 5 minutes
and serve that dir via rsync (almost the same
as with contrib-test).

This way we'd have to manage a single (+ more
compact and efficient) ports backend.
