------- Comment #1 from wayned at  2007-07-15 00:00 CST -------
The behavior or N < 0 is infinite deletions when specified to 3.0.0, but you're
better off omitting --max-delete or specifying --max-delete=2147483647 if you
don't know what version the client is.  The old behavior of --max-delete=0 was
unlimited deletions when specified to older rsync versions, which is why an
rsync 3.0.0 client will terminate a transfer with an older rsync server if that
option was specified.  (And the docs warn you to be sure to only specify
--max-delete=0 to a 3.0.0 client.)
