           Summary: Support (a la Gnu tar) for '-C' (--directory DIR)
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.3
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: maryniak at xs4all.nl

Dear reader,
I have request: could you add an option:

    -C, --directory DIR         change to directory DIR

to rsync? Especially when (like we do) backing up with rsync -R (--relative)
it's nice to have the command in 1 line, like:

rsync -C / -aRz ... usr/local/blackboard rsync://localhost:1873/backup/client/rsync/

instead of:

cd /
rsync -aRz ... usr/local/blackboard rsync://localhost:1873/backup/client/rsync/

Furthermore, it's nice to orthogonality and consistency in (Gnu) tars and rsyncs
options (increases usability).
