I have been using unison for a while over ssh and it works flawlessly
and is incredibly fast. The downsides are the necessary star network
topology (I wish btsync was free software) and the lack of mobile
gadgets clients (you can sync using unison on Android from a Debian
chrooted/overlayed installation if you are OK to not sync some info like
file ownership, but that's quite tedious to setup and use).
