Grant, this version works very well with regards to only loading files 
that have changed.
It's still not backing up the old file when saving if a backup fil 
already exist. It's like its afraid of overwriting the file :) However I 
suspect this to be a problem with the save/autosave functionality of 
MrEd, but I can't test it right now as I can't figure out how to 
temporarily UNinstall DrSync...
