           Summary: --link-dest=${SRC} ${SRC} ${DST} can be smarter
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.7
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: weerd+rsync at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

When using the --link-dest= option and the link destination is the same as the
source, rsync should skip the comparison step and just link all regular files
and create other filetypes (directories, device nodes, etc).
