bug? rsync counts inaccesible file as being transferred

with --stats, shouldn`t we differ between "number of files transferred" and "number of files failed" ?

the problem is, that i have files which ALWAYS fail on transfer, and to check for "number of files failed"<=2 would be the best way for me to check if the overall transfer was ok.

if i magaged to create a patch to adress this, would such patch be accepted ?

rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1040) [sender=3.0.4]

i would expect:

Number of files failed: 1   
Total file size: 590000 bytes
