I neglected to use --modify-window=1 when I first started using rsync.  More
importantly, think how other people have made the same mistake.  Who knows how
many hours, days, or weeks of unneeded syncing we (the group as a whole) have
waited through in total until we've learned.

"With very few exceptions, users will not cuddle up with [a] manual and read it
through before they begin to use [some] software.  In general [...] users are
trying to get something done, and they see reading the manual as a waste of
time, or at the very least, as a distraction that keeps them from getting their
task done."  --
