#1312: quick rsync for simfactory

 Priority:  major        |   Milestone:                     
Component:  SimFactory   |     Version:  development version

 Quite often I find myself developing something (code/parfiles) locally and
 use 'sim sync' to get it to a remote location. Until a recent change in
 simfactory this was usually quite fast (a couple of seconds at most). In
 all of these cases I know that I didn't change anything on the remote
 side. Now 'sim sync' can take a minute even to local machines, depending
 on their file system load since the remote side has to actually read the
 complete tree for comparison. And this is without any actual changes.

 I propose to have a 'sim sync --fast' option which uses timestamps as
 before. This should not be the default since it might not catch all
 changes in every situation, but it would make quick development sessions
 like this (edit locally, compile and run remotely) feasible again.
