Improved output (dry run)

Having dry-run not act like the same command without --dry-run would
make less sense than people occasionally running it and discovering that
they need more options.
-v doesn't show things it didn't touch. So, it touched them for some
reason. Without --itemize-changes you are left in the dark about what
is happening or why. But what you probably want is --omit-dir-times
That being said, -v is virtually useless without --itemize-changes anyway.
