--- Comment #5 from Kevin Korb <rsync at sanitarium.net> ---
I would say that if your goal is to make an editable list to be run through
rsync later you would be a lot better off with an --itemize-changes list and a
script to reformat it after editing.  I don't know about you but I would hate
to have to edit a null terminated text file and I would hate to have to go
lookup why a file is in the list without the --itemize-changes output.

Anyway, I think I am done commenting here and will leave this for Wayne to
decide if this is really a bug or a use case problem.
