sorry, i don't know what i was thinking.... forgive me. i meant to remark how
annoying it is that most C macro functions (strcpy, etc.) and Unix functions
like rsync have different syntax. i spend most of my time programming in C so i
always get this simple thing confused...

e.g. strcpy(dst, src)
     cp src, dst

anyways, sorry for wasting everyone's time with this stupid remark...
