Rsync wants to know if it is a file or a directory before applying the exclude
rules, or it wouldn't have enough information for dir-only exclude rules.  It
might be possible to make the stat call lazy, where the first dir-only rule to
match the name checks if the file-type is known, and does a stat if it is not. 
However, that might over complicate things.  I'm marking this as an enhancement
