We currently have 'Network Sync' which lets you sync anything between
two pcs on the same network. However, it is not very efficient for
large files because it pickles the objects before sending them.

Now that GIO is in a good state I would like to re-implement this
using a raw socket server which reads from the GIO local file
representing the remote file to sync. The remote end fetches this file
directly, so no pickling of large files.

Other data types will continue to go through pickle.

Anyone willing to have an attempt at implementing this?
