Rsync version 3.2.4pre2 is now available for release testing. I decided to
go ahead and make a fairly significant change from pre1 to pre2: the new
backslash escaping of remote args.  This should be a more compatible change
than making --protect-args enabled by default, and I figured that since
there was already an output change in 3.2.4 it would be good to group this
(potential) scripting-relevant change into one release rather than dividing
it over 2 separate releases.
