Yes, I know what dot means to Unix.  However, my question is:  What is
the meaning (to rsync) of the last two arguments to rsync when rsync
is called with the --server option.

Except in the example I gave it is dot space dot.  Two separate
arguments, each a single dot.

rsync --server -e.LsfxC . .
rsync --server --sender -e.LsfxC . /tmp/foo
