No please do not. If I specify an option, I want that option. If I do not want
that option, I will not specify that option.

At most, add a new option that modifies the behavior of -z a la

It's true I can't honestly think of a specific reason off hand, other than
benchmarking and intentionally exercising (not invalid uses already), where I'd
want to -z locally, I don't think it would even help where "local" includes
nfs/samba mounts,


It's also true that since I first used rsync in... 1998 or 1999, I never
considered this a problem. One mans automatic convenience is another mans
"dammned automagical behavior is doing what makes sense in the common case _at
the expense of_ what I need in this case".
