I've noticed that even if rsync has a non-zero exit code on the client that
the server still reports an exit status of 0. For example, I've received an
error 23 with the following output on the client-side "rsync error: some
files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(954) [sender=2.6.9cvs]"
while the server-side rsync_raw_status and rsync_exit_status were still both
zero. The error code returned by rsync on the client side was correctly 23.
Will the rsync server-side error status report the same exit code the client
reports? It seems like if the client or the server experience an error that
the rsync_raw_status or the rsync_exit_status should represent the same
