The only thing rsync currently supports is --delay-updates.  This option
makes rsync place completed files into a dot-subdir of your choice in each
directory of the transfer, and then, when the transfer is complete, it
renames all the changed files into place in rapid succession.  Other
options, such as using the support/atomic-rsync script, require you to be
running commands on the receiving side the transfer.
