I had been contemplating whether we need a new option for this or not.
One idea would be to change the behavior when --partial was combined
with --temp-dir in that the partial file would be renamed to the normal
name in the temp dir on abnormal termination and the directory would be
preferentially checked for the basis file (kinda like --compare-dest).
However, it might be better to create a new option named --partial-dir
that would indicate that this new behavior was desired.  (For instance,
it might surprise someone that the --temp-dir could receive a non-temp
format name in it.)

Anyone have a preference?  Or a better idea?
