Use PARALLEL_RSYNC to set options.

Should the add to the current? Or replace then?

CentOS 3 was supported until 31 October 2010 according to:

-K --keep-dirlinks was introduced in version 2.6.3.

Redhat 9 runs:

$ rsync --version
rsync  version 2.5.5  protocol version 26

Centos 3 runs:

$ rsync --version
rsync  version 2.5.7  protocol version 26

What do we do?

Not support Redhat 9/Centos 3?
