Fast MySQL Backup with rsync

Hi List,

wouldn't it be possible to do a fast backup of the MySQL data in this

1.) rsync the MySQL data (with running mysqld)
2.) Stop mysqld
3.) rsync the MySQL data again

Please answer. I have found a similiar post in the year 2001, but no
replies. I think, if this is possible, it would be very useful for a
whole bunch of tasks. (For example changing hard drives in servers:
You could rsync everything, including the mysql data. The only
downtime would be from the point of shutting down all daemons to get a
consistent snapshot to the point of rebooting the server.)

Thank you in advance.
