[feature request] Modify --backup option to make backups on source side, too

Can you please modify the backup options to work together with  
--remove-source-files so I'm able to create a reliable "move between  
hosts" script?

If --backup is specified, the files to be deleted should be renamed on  
the source side. If --backup-dir is specified, they should be moved  
there, etc.

If this already works, please update the documentation accordingly :-)

Thanks a lot,
