Given that a full backup creates *two* files, a straightforward pipe
isn't going to do:  you would probably be better off just doing 'rsync
- -W' over SSH:  a single file can't record the information used to do
verification of the copy.

That being said, the attached script does much the same thing, but
writes the file length and MD5 checksum to sys.stderr.  Perhaps you
could work it up into something which used MIME to record both the
payload and the verification stuff on the same stream, and then used a
similar script to crack them apart on the other side.
