Ordering file listing

The only way I found is to list the order on the command line like this :

rsync -r[OTHER OPTIONS] ./dir1 ./dir2 ./dir3 ./dir4 remote::rsync/

where my tree is composed by 4 directories (dir1 to dir4) and some files 
  in its root.

But the file in the root can't be processed...

Anyone has another idea ?
