Not as such, no, though if it would be valuable I could look into it and 
report back.  What sort of synchronization, exactly, are you thinking of?

The closest I've come to doing that was replicating my primary repository 
onto a local-disk repository, using that for a week or so while I was away 
from an internet connection, and then splitting off the new commits and 
feeding them onto the end of the primary repository.  That turned out to be 
relatively straightforward in both directions, but it's a bit simpler than 
a general-purpose synchronization.
