You mean you just look at the return code from rsync and ignore the individual lines reported in the output? That's certainly easiest if it's accurate. Does rsync stop transferring if it encounters an error and thus only one error code is ever relevant? I felt that there were multiple errors that couldn't be expressed in a single code but I may be wrong since I haven't been using rsync long.
