You could try devel/git? It's not a file system, but a very efficient
directory content tracker/version control system. One of the things I
use it for is to keep a certain directory in sync between a desktop and
a laptop. It works equally well with text or binary files.

Or maybe will do what you want? Haven't
tried that, though.
