Rsync 3.0.0pre9 released

Ditto on good results for OSX!

One thing I noticed though. I tried -b (--backup) and noticed that the  
suffix "~"  gets added to pre-xisting files as expected but if the  
file is a package or application it gets added to all the resource  
files inside the package and renders it unusable. Certain files like a  
text file with .rtf file ending get their extension changed to .rtf~  
also rendering them unusable. Just an observation. Mac OSX sees these  
packages as folders thus the screwy behavior. Is there a way on OSX to  
add the suffix to the file name and not to the extension? Thanks,  Rob D
