The latest git version now has a modifier to the filter options that lets
you specify include/exclude rules that only apply to xattr names. These can
be used to control what names get read from of the source files
(sender-side rules) and what names get deleted from the destination files
(receiver side rules). I've just done some simple testing, and it seems to
work fine.
