                    files right away

  Target Milestone: ---


I want to have an option to change the behavior of --remove-source-files to
remove the file right after it was transfer instead of after the whole
operation finished.

My use case is to move files between systems with bad connectivity and
low disk space, on the recv side the files are deleted soon after
receiving them making rsync to download them again if the last sync
operation didn't finish correctly.

I use rsync like a queue in this case, sort of

thank you so much for the wonderful rsync!
