Just delete extraneous files, without updating other changes?

Hello all,

   I thought --recursive  and  --delete-before  might be an option and I can quit rsync when it begins the updates, but the incremental recursive scanning is disabled and this will certainly crash rsync as it was before moving to v3.x (too many files).

   I have no experience with --write-batch but I wonder if it's safe/sane to edit the resulting batch output file, or by doing a --dry-run | grep "deleting" and fire that list thru rm.
   Other thoughts?
