I have another small feature suggestion, it should not cause such a stir 
as the whole "file list" issue (I kind of wish I never said anything 
about it :) ).

What about adding a "UMASK" setting to rsync (for use on the command 
line and/or perhaps rsyncd.conf)?  I realize that it may be a 
problem/conflict with -p, but I think it could be a useful feature.
