Not to be distrusting but I am also going to watch out and see how
easily we might break something, just for nazi-like mindset in enforcing
a policy.

Mind you, I am not against the policy itself, I think it is a good
policy, and I am not trying to ask for exceptions for rsync,.

But we also need to reasonable, and unless someone volunteers to do the
actual work *without* breaking the tool in the process, I think a policy
like this need to be evaluated case by case and not just blindly and
rigidly enforced.
