Implied directories are those that are above the transfer area but
included as a part of the path due to the use of -R (--relative). By
default all implied directories get sent with their directory
attributes, and the destination is forced to match that. If you want
the implied paths to differ, --no-implied-dir will leave them alone.
Using --keep-dirlinks also affects the transfer area, so that you can
put a symlink to a directory anyplace that the sender has a dir.
