It makes sense to me that if we aren't copying permissions/acls, that the new
file should preserve the current file's permissions/acls.

It might also make sense to include ACLs in the definition of --perms in a
future rsync as long as there is a protocol-number bump that determines if we
can send the ACLs or not, and rsync outputs an error when ACLs are being
dropped (i.e. some are found, and we couldn't preserve them due to the protocol
# being too low).
