That's what I'm doing so far; unfortunately, I'm using rsync to backup
a Windows filesystem on a Unix box, and who knows what bizarre
directories and with what bizarre permissions Windows is capable of
inventing: manually excluding them works pretty well, until a new one
appears for some reason.
So it's a bit unfortunate that a "permission denied" or "path name too
long" or "device or resource busy" error on foo/corge/temp/muf/blah/
will prevent bar/files/oldfile.txt from being deleted.
