--- Comment #2 from Wayne Davison <wayned at samba.org> ---
The -N option is the letter that the crtimes patch uses for --crtimes, so I
consider it already allocated.

One thing you can use is the popt (option parsing) library's support for
aliases in both /etc/popt and ~/.popt -- e.g.:

rsync alias -N --numeric-ids
rsync alias -9 -ai --numeric-ids --chmod=o-rwx --omit-link-times

As long as you allocate your hosts with a consistent /etc/popt file, you can
treat the option the same as if it were compiled into the executable.
