inplace and partial transfers

I need to use rsync with options inplace and no-whole-file, but have
problems with transfers of large files being frequently interrupted.

partial-dir could be the solution, but it does not work with
inplace-updating of destination files.

I am thinking of doing the sync in two steps:

1) sync with --partial-dir and --backup-dir to send updated files to a
different directory at the destination
2) sync from the backup dir to the actual destination with --inplace
and --no-whole-file

Do you think this would work?

Thanks for your help!
