There was another patch that I thought was needed with all the timeout
problems people have been seeing with large files -- the patch that
Stefan Nehlsen sent a few months back.  I modified it to work with the
latest CVS version, tested it, and checked it in.  From my reading of
the patch, I think it has a very low chance of screwing anything up.
If others disagree, I can back it out and we can put it in later.

I'd be glad to check that in and if there is still disagreement over the
syntax, we can change it in CVS.  I'll look at this next.

Talking syntax reminds me of another patch that I think should go in:
the one that makes rsync accept rsync:// syntax in the destination, not
just the source.  Anyone disagree with that?
