--- Comment #2 from Kevin Korb <rsync at sanitarium.net> ---
--prune-empty-dirs only affects the file list that rsync is working from.  That
means it handles dirs that are either really empty on the source or anything
that has been emptied via --exclude or --filter.  Options that modify the way
rsync stores stuff but not the list of stuff it is processing are not affected
by --prune-empty-dirs.  That would apply to the 3 --*-dest options.  As long as
there are files on the source that haven't been excluded or filtered they are
still in the listing that rsync is processing so the directory is not empty.
