I believe the common position of the archive admins is that this should not
be gatewayed through us: anyone who can upload should also be able to sync,
preferably by way of a button in the LP UI.

Note that doing a sync by hand, even with the best of scripts, isn't going
to look *exactly* the same as a LP sync, and there's the possibility of bugs
in the script or user error when doing this by hand, which is largely why
this approach hasn't been promoted prior to now.
