--- Comment #4 from Christian Boltz <suse-beta@xxxxxxxxx> ---
Silly question - why does bundled vs. external zlib influence the commandline
parameters at all? I don't see why a user would have to use a different
commandline parameter just because an internal detail of rsync changed.

Ideally rsync -z should use whatever zlib is there (bundled or external), and
I'd expect that both will result in the same compressed bytes.

(This is something that should probably be done upstream, so feel free to
forward my comment to the upstream bugtracker.)

BTW: --new-compress will become very funny if someone "invents" another
compression-related parameter in a few years. Will this be
--even-newer-compress then? ;-)
