           Summary: --inplace does extra WRITE operations
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.7
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: ildar at

Even if a block contents in dst is the same as in src, it gets written anyway.
It is fine with no --inplace.
But with --inplace it is:
1. Excessive
2. Unexpected. Very troublesome if dst is (partially) sparse.

Is it possible to be fixed? (I guess it's trivial)
