Most people don't mirror CPAN. They mirror many things.

This is the same reason we've struggled with statistics. How do you
ask someone mirroring three dozen different things to put in a special
log-munging tool just for us.
By producing a tool that is compatible with rsync (or a fork, or a
patch, whatever) that *also* does the extra stuff you want, and selling
it as the bee's knees for mirror admins, so that they have a good reason
to use it for all their mirroring needs instead of the unimproved rsync.
