I think you are overengineering this.

 - Single-file restore is well solved by Moodle's backup/restore UI + Browse

 - As you found out, librsync isn't what you want... just rsync _all_
of it, and then inject each entry using copy-to-journal. It doesn't
fix the disk usage problem, but it sure solves the "restart datastore"
and the associated issue that you are deleting whatever new was in the
Journal. You are not "restoring".

Stoopid question: can't you 'FUSE'-mount the XS directory with sshfs
and then use copy-to-journal? Latency will make that a tad slower, but
the local-diskspace issue is gone.
