That trick falls a little bit short of what I was hoping for.  It
deletes all regular files, but it does not delete symlinks that are
matched on the receiver or files of any other type (most notably
directories).  The precaution of disabling the quick check is nice, but
it should also be possible to leave the quick check on.
