Attached is a patch against HEAD to enable an optional compression level when
using --compress. Tested on NetBSD, running against both same version and stock
2.6.3 on the remote end, over ssh.

This uses the "feature" that popt will ignore option arguments it isn't
requested to parse. eg. Older rsyncs will happily run with the option

Note, to support the syntax "--compress 1" (ie, space separated), a patch to
popt is required, available from
