Or softlinks, if you use the '--copy-links' option.
This has two other advantages:
One: The links are self documenting. (With hard links you have to search for inodes.)
Two: The sync source directory does not have to be in the same filesystem as the original files.

AFAIK this doesn't work directly.
But you could create hardlinks of your source files into another
directory locally and then rsync that directory.
