Sorry, I cannot agree.
rsync must take care of the dirs "a" and "sourcedir" - especially when they do
not exist. Rsync must create them and I cannot find any option to configure
rsync on "how to create that root dir". I have at about 500 "sourcedir"s to
rsync and they belong to different users. The created /a/sourcedir structure on
the receiver side must allow to the users to modify its content or even remove
it completely.
I understand, rsync is unable to set those permissions because currently does
not send these information (just only the name of these dirs), so it can be
either a bug or a feature request.
The idea to use /a/sourcedir/././something was promising but it wont work on
