That feature exists in the current development rsync, under the name

OK, so I got the latest HEAD snapshot and it compiles, but it doesn't pass all the built-in tests.

Diff'ng to 3.0.6 it looks like major surgery on the communication bits between 3.0.6 and 3.1.0.pre

How confident are you in the current state of 3.1.0.pre and the nightly snapshots?  Should I be concerned about running this on production data?
