I answer myself, Rsync 3.1.0 provides the following improvement :
    - A daemon can now inform a client about a daemon-configured timeout value
      so that the client can assist in the keep-alive activity (protocol 31).

I understand that it will avoid timeouts reached by the daemon while the client is working on its side (file list generation etc...).
But will it also help when the daemon is working on its side ? (file deletion as in my example above)

Thank you !
