           Summary: -- Stats Output
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: core

When using a multi line batch file to synch two systems the --stats output
gives no indication of which line in the batch file the individual stats refer

It would be helpful and make the output easier to understand if the stats
output printed the rsync command executed as the first line of any stats

To place the above suggestion into context, I synchronise 8 directories on two
machines daily using cron/rsync with the stats emailed to two administrators.

The stats are great and assist in identifying problems but it is a pain
remembering which group of stats belong to which directory.  

If it is considered a security problem having the full rsync command as the
first line of the stats output perhaps the source or destination section of the
command line could be utilised
