Well, I'm not the only one who makes the mistake, and I think that an
option controlling this behavior would be useful for others, but I
guess there's something to be said for keeping the number of options
to a minimum.

In which case, do you have boilerplate shell code which parses rsync
command lines (or is there such code included in the distribution for
easy update in case the argument syntax changes)? It seems non-trivial
to me.
