My only complaint about sup versus rdist is that sup doesn't appear to
CRC the files that it transfers, so if the IP checksum fails, you've
got a corrupt file and no way of knowing that it's corrupt.  I notice
what I think are IP checksum failures (that is, an error isn't
detected) on my slip link about every other week or so.   Does anybody
know for sure if it's true that sup doesn't do a per-file CRC?
