Option to not update Atime on filesystems not mounted noatime

I have a single filesystem i don't mount noatime because mutt would work 
very good otherwise.

Today, in a discussion about mkisofs, i learned that Linux since 2.6.8 
supports "O_NOATIME" as an option to open. (see "man 2 open")

So how comes that rsync doesn't do that and/or there is no option to 
switch on that behaviour?

Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as 
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated, 
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
