--- Comment #2 from Kevin Korb <rsync at sanitarium.net> ---
I agree with Carson.  If rsync is told to do the impossible it should fail with
an appropriate error and exit code.

Unfortunately I would also have to argue that the current behaviour is wrong
because it does not exit with an error code and because I think the error
message should also go to stderr instead of just syslog.  A non-0 exit code
would allow the launching script to simply keep trying until it works.

I think even the systemd people would prefer an explicit failure over an exit 0
with no output.  A program that fails to do what it was told to do shouldn't be
effectively the same as /bin/true.
