cp(1) -n option for rsync?

I looked in the archives and documentation and didn't notice anything
of this. The closest thing I found was -update, but that doesn't do
exactly to what I would like.
I would like to be able to use rsync to mirror some directories, but
to explicitly *not* override any files that already exist on the other
side. Sort of like a file system "append", if you will.
The cp(1) command on FreeBSD has the option -n:
-n Do not overwrite an existing file. (The -n option overrides any
previous -f or -i options.)
I was wondering if I could somehow accomplish this doing an rsync between
I'd like to avoid to have to do an test -e over ssh to see the file exists
before copying the file accross.
Any info would be appreciated.
