This is a feature request for something that plagues me often when rsyncing
from UNIX (Linux and OS X) systems to Windows.  NTFS has several invalid
characters that are valid under ext3 and HFS+, which often requires
time-consuming and tedious renaming operations on the source systems to fix
filenames and directory names before rsyncing.  In addition, Windows silently
strips extraneous whitespace from the beginning and end of file and directory
names, but rsync fails when trying to copy files or directories that have this
extra whitespace in their names.
