BTW, is there an ETA on 2.6.9? Ther have been a couple of quite
significant bug fixes, including "[Bug 4079]  New: rsync fails with
--inplace, --link-dest and --no-whole-file" which bit me badly;
I think the time is about right... Also, with Debian planning to do a
new release in December this would be a good time to get a fairly recent
version of rsync in.
