Comment (by knarf):

 If we go so far as to capture and parse the rsync output, we could touch
 whatever rsync copied after it is done. This updates the timestamps on the
 remote side, and does so only for whatever rsync thought is different. The
 catch would be that rsync would, for future copies, always copy these
 files again because the timestamp would always differ. This could be
 turned off with the --update option (which does not transfer files which
 are newer on the receivers side than on the senders side). However, this
 might also not be what you want in case you do want to overwrite remote

 A forced sync does not help if the build is initiated on the remote
 machine (I usually work directly on the remote side and do not use the
 --remote simfactory option).
