I'm glad.  I remember a brief debate about it, and I thought that my side 
lost.  It always seemed to me that it should go on a case-by-case basis, 
rather than assuming that NFS over gigabit was slower than ssh over

I haven't heard that discussed.  I think we'll just leave it as it is,
where it only defaults to --whole-file if it's doing a local transfer.
