--- Comment #5 from Kevin Korb <rsync at sanitarium.net> ---
I had the same knee jerk reaction as Wayne to this question.  -I means re-copy
everything (or at least re-diff everything unless --whole-file).  But I never
attempted to mix it with -u so I held my tongue.  Is it possible that in the
past -I + -u meant re-copy everything but don't overwrite anything newer and
now that exception is no longer honored?  If that is the case I am not even
sure whether this would be a regression or not.  I have always considered -I to
mean re-copy everything as an alternative to the even worse option of
--checksum.  But I can see a possible use case for it interacting with -u to
redefine "everything".
