You could look at the code in CPAN.pm, distributed with Perl to see how
it does it.  Generally, it uses Net::FTP or LWP to transfer the file and
then Compress::Zlib to uncompress it.  From there, it then pulls out
what it needs with Archive::Tar.

I've also heard rumors of a module implementing the rsync protocol.
CPAN says to contact Lee Eakin <leakin at dfw.nostrom.com> if you're
interested in that...
