it seems there's a more-recent solution, referenced here:

that points out:

   "Since OS X 10.4 (aka Tiger) the MacOS ships with a modified
version of rsync. An added option, -E, enables the transfer of
extended attributes."

exploring, the current apple patches @:

apply successfully only to rsync v263 -- and not to v269.

rather than depending on apple for patches to old versions, dooes it
make sense (is it possible?) to integrate this solution into the rsync
