rsync 2.6.5 'max verbosity' snafu

Continuing with my backup script (see previous post), I've found a small oops regarding the 'max verbosity' option for rsyncd.conf

In the manpage this option is listed as a module option. Poking through the source, however, shows that it's parsed as a global option (loadparm.c).

If it's a question of which end to change, I would find this option being per module much more useful.
