large blocksize for transferring files from one filesystem to
another on the same disk?

Is there any way of increasing rsync's block transfer size for when you
need to transfer data from one filesystem to another on the same disk?
Using a large blocksize tends to decrease track to track seeks. If I
put a large dd or something in between two tar's in such a situation, I
see over double the throughput on an AIX system (1M vs 64K).
