I'm trying to sync a tree containing symbolic links to files outside
that directory tree.  I've tried with -L and --copy-unsafe-links but
apparently the files pointed by symbolic links are always re-copied
over and over again regardeless whether they have been modified or

I can hardly believe this is feature, but if this is the case, what
combination of options would let me copy files pointed by symlinks
*only* if changed on the local directory?
