           Summary: Allow --link-dest argument to be a file
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.9
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: andrew at pimlott.net
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

If I pass a file as --link-dest, rsync complains "--link-dest arg is not a
dir".  But this makes perfect sense and would be useful:

  rsync -a --link-dest=prevfile srcfile dstfile
