           Summary: enhancment option for temporary files
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org

I would like to have an option that disables the temporary file creation and 
immediatly creates the destination file.
Thus: when rsync determines a new copy should be made, that it will be made 
instantly without any creation of temporary files.

The problem i have is that i use rsync to sync a large directory structure (1 
million files) and that the rename action sometimes is not allowed. So the 
copied file gets deleted. I think this problem would be solved if there would 
be no rename call.
