This looks good.  My main reservation is that it makes it even harder
to explain how rsync works, but I think the increase in flexibility
justifies it.  

I'd like to get some of the smaller patches in to stabilize 2.5 before
we do this.

Why?  They're used to link from long_options to the cases in
parse_arguments().  Some of them might be obsolete now, but it doesn't
seem worthwhile to take them out.
