Rsync doesn't have any logic to try to deal with hard-links from files
inside of the transfer to files outside of the transfer. If you're
doing some kind of a backup, check into the --link-dest option: you
would transfer into an empty hierarchy and let rsync create the hard-
links for identical files (in both attributes and content).
