One thing that's not 100% clear for me: in the NEWS file you state:

 - Added the --acls (-A) option to preserve Access Control Lists.  This is
   an improved version of the prior patch that was available, and it even
   supports OS X ACLs.  (If you need to have backward compatibility with
   old, patched versions of rsync, apply the acls.diff file from the patches

Does applying the acls.diff patch influence the workings of the new
"standard" --acls option, when _not_ talking to an old patched version?
If it doesn't harm the standard working, then it's probably a good idea
for the Debian packaged version to apply the diff at least until this
version of rsync is contained in an official new release of Debian...
