No worries - the "jam it all into the exception message" approach is a
tolerable workaround for the moment, since the key requirement is for
admins to be able to see the partial sync logs for jobs that fail, so
they have some chance of figuring out what went wrong.

I just wanted to bring it up as something to look at before the plugin
APIs are declared stable.

Well there's the trick. I'm gonna go the Google route and call them
"beta" for as long as possible so I can always make these changes and
tell people the APIs were never stable. :)

Heh, it works to my benefit to - it means I can say "this is annoyingly difficult" and know that the situation can still be improved.

I figure between the need to support your existing yum-based repos and my "let rsync do most of the work" directory tree mirroring we should be able to thrash out something fairly reasonable (especially once I start working on the rsync delta file transfer process for snapshot trees that will also involve a custom distributor plugin).
