I was complaing (only to myself) that rsync doesn't allow to put some
common options in ~/.rsyncrc or an environment variable. Then I simply
added an alias in my .bash_profile:

    alias rsync='rsync -v --progress'

Unfortunately, this is still something that developers would like to
know when facing a bug report :)
