But that's exactly what -R does -- it sends the dirs mentioned as path elements
(it just doesn't scan the dirs).  There's no '.' dir mentioned in the path, so
it doesn't get sent.  This behavior is very old, so I would be very hesitant to
change it even if I thought it made more sense (which I don't agree that it
does).  The general rule is that the dot dir only gets sent if you're sending
the full contents of a directory, or if you've included '.' as a part of the
path with --relative.
