I see, but I'm still not sure (may be me).
With our current rsync setup, we have in /path/to/destdir (which is what
rsync://localhost:1873/backup/client/rsync/ points to) a nice and very handy
verbatim copy of the directory structure, like:


including, most notably, the same permissions/ownerships of the top level dirs
(like /usr and /var) themselves (as compared to the source host). I like this,
because it means I can just simple mv such a dir to a thrashed server and worry
about perms/ownerships.
I may be missing something, but are you sure that:

echo "usr/local/blackboard" rsync -aRz --files-from=- /

would accomplish the same? I tried it, but it does not transfer any (of the
changed) files... Please excuse me if I'm missing some subtle point.
