I am not responsible for this. I merely found out about this from another developer, whom I'll call 'Alice', who told me about the task she was given.

Customer: we need you to write a script which synchronizes two directories.
Alice: why don't you just use rsync?
Customer: because the target box runs Windows and the admin says it doesn't work.

Alice wrote the script and it works just fine. All it does is call rsync.
