If it were local that would be easy. This is remote (via SSH), so I'd
have to login before I run rsync to verify that directory is that. I was
hoping I could save that step since rsync is already doing all that already.

A --link-dest-required flag would be great. That way rsync doesn't copy
a bunch of files since there is no hard link source.
