Yeah. I don't think I'd ever change the default, though adding an option is
possible. However, there are several ways to create paths remotely with
rsync now. For example:
mkdir -p /var/tmp/backup.$$/please/create/this/path
rsync -aivR /var/tmp/backup.$$/./please/create/this/path host:/dest/
rm -rf /var/tmp/backup.$$
rsync -aiv /src/ host:/dest/please/create/this/path/
But, admittedly, that would be a good deal easier like this (picking an
option out of thin air):
rsync -aiv --create-dest-dirs /src/ host:/dest/please/create/this/path/
Something like that does seem fairly useful to me.
