In other words, you want rsync to hard-link the file and then change the
permissions, affecting the permissions as seen in the --link-dest dir?
IMHO that's a dodgy thing to do, and rsync probably won't support it;
If you're willing to let some permissions in the --link-dest dir change,
why don't you just chmod everything in the dir at the beginning?
