This is the way BackupPC (using File::RsyncP) invokes the client side
of rsync.  This is perl code that emulates one side of the rsync
connection, and the real rsync is used as the server side with the
--server option.

I agree that using the --server option manually in this manner is subject
to change, so I can't reasonably expect backward compatibility for an
internal feature.

So it looks like I should update File::RsyncP to send the exclude arguments
through the socket instead of arglist.  Up until 2.6.2 the arglist method
worked fine.
