Interesting idea, but due to the setup is a bit of a complicated config
change (it involves numerous "file server" VMs built using a pre-defined
build system) - I'd prefer rsync to just stop deleting-during on I/O
errors, but your suggestion is something to bear in mind as well. Plus on
some of the targets the snapshot could still disappear at some point even
with that change.
