but this doesn't work for windows acls, and maybe not for unix acls.  it
also wouldn't apply to apple fork data, which was another thread i found
but forgot to mention in my message.

i realize this is turning rsync into more of a backup system than it is 
now, which is why i was thinking maybe it could be done with client side
