I was originally against the idea, but have softened my opposition after
I saw how self-contained and simple the code turned out to be.  One
remaining problem with it as it stands now is that it doesn't have the
proper configure support (we may need to add a putenv() compatibility
function, for instance).  If someone would like to help with the cross-
platform compatibility of putenv(), that would help to speed this idea's
acceptance a bit more.

Not without using --relative (and all that implies).  Rsync will only
create the destination directory itself without that.
