Number of files to be transferred?

I'm writing a wrapper around a large number of rsyncs that need to
happen, and it would be great if I could parse the output of a running
rsync and find out how far along it is.  To do this, I would need to
know how many files the rsync is going to transfer.  If I run 'rsync
-avz --progress', it tells me how many files it is considering, but not
how many it actually needs to update.

Does anyone know how to get rsync to show how many files it will
actually update?
