No, there is not. A couple possible other solutions:
Consider using --delay-updates so that rsync moves all the completed
files/symlinks into place very rapidly (make sure to use a relative
--partial-dir, which is true by default).
Or consider using the atomic-rsync script from the support dir which would
allow you to do a normal --link-dest transfer into a new directory and (if
setup with symlinks) atomically move the whole new hierarchy into place at
