This looks very promising. I have two concerns:

1) how bad is it if one of the batch destinations isn't exactly like the
original's destination was? Are we talking corruption, or will it say
"You screwed up, try again!" ?

2) The man page says 

       Note:  Batch  mode should be considered experimental in this
version of
       rsync. The interface or behaviour may change before it

... Is that just to scare off the weaker types, or should I be wary of
using this for production work?
