There is not currently a way to do that. I whipped up the appended
patch that makes -WW disable full-file checksum computation and makes
that the default for a local transfer. When comparing -W vs -WW in some
local-transfer testing, it didn't result in any perceivable difference
in transfer speed or runtime. You can verify that it is enabled by
using --out-format='%i %C %n%L' and noting that all the checksums turn
into all-bits-on values (the checksum bytes are still transmitted so
that a read-error on the sending side can be indicated to the receiver).
