What about using XML-RPC to give out file lists in real time and wp on
ServerA(source) to produce the file chunks in form of zips of fixed sizes
and using the HTTP_API for the file downloads so that we can have a simple
progress bar of the net file move completed. as I have proposed in the 3rd
point of my proposal(http://piyushmishra.com/blog/ideas/file-move.html) we
can use the md5 checksum way to know that the full data of a particular
chunk has been transferred and that can be striked off the checklist giving
us a clear way of making the statistic and also ensure that very little or
no data is lost in a case when we have huge amount of data (huge enough to
not allow the move in 1 go)
