As you said, all these options are irrelevant when rsync is in the middle of
copying a single big file. This copy loop is inefficient, that's what my test
case shows. And it's very much real: when I move 5T from one server to another
new server via GBit Ethernet, and I use rsync (because that's my habit because
rsync is so great), I am some 10 hours slower than with cp.
