I'm trying to prevent creation of new directories on destination.
The goal is to populate an existing file tree (means using --recursive) only
with new files, not folders+files.

The situation is quite simple, I sync and merge two file trees, A&B into one,
Then I add files to C tree, that I would like to sync back to A and B.
Both A&B trees are similar, but leaf directories differs.

I tried to ask to the mailing list first if it was possible with current
options, without any answer, so I guess this is not possible. Would love to be
wrong and that enhancement/new feature is not.
