Hey there!  Thanks for the patch.  I haven't had a chance to try it,
but I did snag it, clean it up, and make it apply to the current git
source.  Note: it usually helps to use an attachment for a patch so
that it doesn't get manged; i.e. your patch was wrapped and had all
tabs replaced by spaces.

You'll find the patch in the rsync patches repo:;a=tree
