The only reason I ask is that I have large arrays (2TB) and it takes 3-4 
days to re-sync.  If there was a way to re-sync the data (like rsync 
using the check sum switch) that only updates changes rather than the 
whole array, it would save a considerable amount of time.  The only 
other option is the sync-skip option but that reduces the data 
reliability.
