           Summary: Get remote disk space

It would be very nice to have an option for checking the remaining disk space
from a remote node (and don't transfer any files if the value is lower than a
certain limit). This way, I wouldn't have to transfer a whole bunch of files
just to get an error in the middle of the transfer because the remote side has
run out of disk space. If there would be such an option, rsync could just
refuse to transfer any files but die with an error message instead. I guess
this option will only be possible if the remote side is an rsync daemon but.

Thank you for writing such a great software as rsync, I'm using a lot and am
totally happy with it!
