Seems to me the best way to accomplish this is to be sure that the 
parent directory is not a directory that someone can rename... ie, when 
I rsync our home directories, there is no danger of anyone ever renaming 
the 'home' directory...

So, just put the top level directories that *can* be renamed by the 
users into a parent directory that they can *not* rename, and use that 
for the root for your rsync...

Or maybe I'm missing something?


Best regards,
