I sent it to the list:

I don't think a configure option is necessary though; this patch just
adds a new command-line option to jpilot.  If you call "jpilot -s" it
signals the jpilot process to initiate a sync.  I use hotplug to call
"jpilot -s" when I press the sync button on the cradle.

I think it's a best-of-both-worlds kinda thing.  If you don't want to
delete the files after installing, then they won't get installed again
unless they're newer.
