AuthorNote

lowering priority as it is only for rsyncd.  This is a non-standard
configuration. There is currently no patch (though it seems one is being
worked on), but there is a workaround: use this in rsyncd.conf:
refuse options = --*-dest --partial-dir --backup-dir
Should have a man page update if pushing this out without a patch
