my poor memory. i feel this question is so familiar but just can not
figure out why ....

but i am thinking another way. rsync sender prepare a file list which
contain records for each file. so sender should be able to flag the
status about each file and when free that record, it should know exactly
about how it handled that file. then it should be able to dump it...
