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?
