Thank you for your feedback Ferran !

I'm not sure about why this patch hasn't been landed yet :)

Regarding benefits of using this option in conjunction with --link-dest.
Well, certainly same benefit as without :)
But imagine you are in a daily backup scheme, using --link-dest.
Everyday you have a new timestamped backup directory.
Day n, backup window is over, but you did not finish to transfer a huge file.
Thanks to this patch, day n+1 will resume the huge file flawlessly, inplace.

Hope to see this merged :)
