I prune out kernel sources for architectures other that the one I run (to
conserve disk space) and usually (even now) only get changed files.  There
have been a couple of times in the past month or so where sup has fetched/
updated all files -- once when a chmod -R was run on the tree, and when
the failing disk on the server was replaced...

Contrary to popular belief, Unix is user friendly.  
It just happens to be selective about who it makes friends with.
