Ironically, because of the title of this thread :-)

Ah, and on non-Windows platforms, because "mount Tahoe as a
filesystem" part does not work. Currently. Even when it did, it did so
so slowly that it did not. Work, that is.

IIRC, there is a ticket opened along the lines of "make Tahoe more
friendly for rsync". With the reason.
