That's reasonable, but the lack of an exit code 23 when the post-transfer
checksum fails still needs to be fixed.  An rsync 2.6.9 receiver gets this
right, and it also prints `(No batched update for resend of "file")' (note the
`resend of').  Perhaps the same code path does both the `resend of' and the
exit code 23, and it just isn't being triggered properly in the rsync 3.0.0
