rsync for Mac OS X

You can upgrade Lion's version of rsync (2.6.9) to 3.x (currently 3.0.9) via Homebrew:

brew install https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-dupes/master/rsync.rb

Backing up a remote folder to a local one works like this then:

rsync -avz -e ssh www-data@example.com:/var/www/ /var/www/
