OK, that's good. Thanks.

I really think we will regret this later. I don't see any compelling
reason to overload this variable with more than one meaning,
especially because it's only a workaround for an OS/SSH bug.
A general-purpose RSYNC_OPTS variable would be more tasteful. I think
popt makes supporting this fairly straightforward. Alternatively
people can use shell functions or scripts.

OK, that's good
