Use --out-format='changed something: %i %n%L' and see if the output to
stdout contains a line beginning with "changed something: ".  :)

Including the number of deleted files in --stats output might still be
nice and wouldn't be hard to do.  If a --max-delete limit is
specified, rsync already counts the files it deletes.
