Yes, but this works only if you have rsync available (I'm in this case 
now, but I used to have a repository reachable only through WebDAV with 
GNU Arch). It would be cool to have something working through the bzr 
transport layer (additionally, rsync doesn't necessarily preserve 
atomicity at the repository level, so someone else accessing your mirror 
while you're updating might be problematic).
