Hello Hans,
texsync --tree=current also takes the zips.
--tree=tex seems to be more, than just the unzipped zips. Is there any tree
that is exactly the same as "current" but unzipped?

You're right, the --delete option is not good for people who have
user-files in the same texmf-tree as the distribution.
Perhaps, I'll just use rsync directly without using texsync nor ctxtools...

If you want to include the --delete nevertheless, you could add
something like --exclude=context/user/* --exclude=context/third/*

Cheers, Peter
