My script constructs an rsync command with a --progress arg by default.
I let the user of my script specify rsync args, which I append to the default
Without a --noprogress arg, the user can't turn off the default I chose.

I could work around this by recognizing --noprogress, deleting it from the user
list and deleting --progress from my default list. Messier, and it also
introduces into the user's mind that there is a --noprogress arg to rsync,
which there isn't.
