the standard openstack swift command line client [1] upload command has a --changed option that might suit your needs:

  -c, --changed         Will only upload files that have changed since the
                        last upload

For comparison you might also consider trying swiftly [2] - who's put command has a --different option that might also fit your needs:

  -d, --different       For PUTs with an --input option, first performs a HEAD
                        on the object and compares the X-Object-Meta-Mtime
                        header with the modified time of the PATH obtained
                        from the --input option and then PUTs the object only
                        if the local time is different. It will also check the
                        local and remote sizes and PUT if they differ.
                        ETag/MD5sum checking are not done (an option may be
                        provided in the future) since this is usually much
                        more disk intensive. When the --input PATH is a
                        directory, this offers an easy way to upload only the
                        differing files since the last upload (at the expense
                        of HEAD requests). NOTE THAT THIS CAN UPLOAD OLDER
                        FILES OVER NEWER ONES! DIFFERENT does not mean NEWER.
