Thanks!  I have adapted your patch for 3.1.0dev and put it in the patches
directory.  I'm considering including it in the 3.1.0 release.

Some notes on the changes I made in the official patch:

 - The option sending was enhanced to send -b to a remote sender, even if the
local receiver is using --backup-deleted (making it more backward-compatible). 
A remote receiver gets both -b and --backup-deleted, which is fine since the
latter overrides the former.

 - Doc changes need to patch rsync.yo (which generates rsync.1).

Otherwise everything looked great.  The changes are nice and simple, which
makes me lean toward accepting this as a new option.
