--inplace only avoids rewriting unchanged blocks when the delta-transfer
algorithm is on, and it is off by default for a local run.  You can turn it on
explicitly with --no-whole-file.  I'm not sure whether adding another mode
where the receiver checks for unchanged blocks would be worth the effort.
