Keep Alive packets

Hello Everyone,

Would it be posiable to add a "keep alive" option to rsync. The problem 
I am having is that the connection is dropped while rsync is scanning 
the local directory. If "null" packets are send to the server every 60 
seconds or so, the connection will stay up and the sync will work.

Or maybe there is an option that does this already ?
