I just saw that my patch for the manpage copied the example from
--max-size a bit too literally...:

+may be a fractional value (e.g. "bf(--max-size=1.5m)").

That should probably be something like:

+may be a fractional value (e.g. "bf(--min-size=2.5k)").

Additionally, the --max-size description could now simply refer to the
--min-size text for explanation of the SIZE value, something like:

dit(bf(--max-size=SIZE)) This tells rsync to avoid transferring any
file that is larger than the specified SIZE. See bf(--min-size) above
for the description of SIZE.
