Any progress on this?  An option to delete everything in DEST that isn't
included in the transfer via something like a --delete-non-included option
would make my life _so_ much easier.  Since the workarounds are all varying
degrees of ugly this is more than just a nice-to-have.

I am trying to do:

rsync -a --delete /a/b/ /c/d/e/ /f

In /f I only want the contents of directories b and e and nothing else -- even
if something else is already there.

Also, the OS and hardware could probably be set to all since this is something
that applies to all platforms.
