Addendum: I have been in touch with Tevfik Karagülle
<tevfik at>, the cwRsync author, about what users like you who
want patched versions of cwRsync should do.  He says you can just
compile your own rsync.exe as in alternative #1 and then replace the
rsync.exe installed by cwRsync with your own to achieve the effect of
a patched cwRsync.
