It's an unintentional side-effect of how directories are handled that
they aren't counted in the transferred-file stats, even if they got
created (since the generator is the one that creates the missing dirs,
but the receiver creates (and counts) the updated files).  It would be
nice to make this clearer somehow, but it would require a protocol
update to get the count of created directories into the created file
count, and that may not be worth it.  If you have a suggestion for how
to improve things, let me know.
