------- Comment #2 from matt at  2008-01-23 23:27 CST -------
With --read-batch, when rsync processes the flags, the protocol_version is
always 30 (it has not yet been set from the batch file).  As a result,
--inplace is incorrectly forced off for any pre-protocol-30 batch file,
regardless of whether the batch file was written with --inplace.

Once the above is fixed, I am still hoping that rsync 3 will fail more
gracefully when applying a *pre-protocol-30* non-inplace batch file in inplace
