------- Comment #3 from matt at  2008-10-02 20:07 CST -------
What is the justification for a client log file containing all itemize lines
*except* regular file transfers?  If it is to be consistent with a daemon, I
would expect to see no itemize lines at all on a dry run.

Whatever the expected behavior is, it should be documented in the man page. 
The man page does say that --log-file is "similar to the logging that a daemon
does".  Thus, it might suffice to state in the description of "transfer
logging" in rsyncd.conf(5) that nothing is logged on a dry run.
