rsync gotchas on windoze

[ #8751 ]
using rsync on linux is a piece of cake. it just works.

using rsync on windoze on the other hand is a pig - because DOS uses backslashes and stupid filesystem conventions ( drive letters are such a stupid idea ).

imagine the fun of being bitten by \" appearing in a path or c:\foo\bar being mistaken as a host rather than a path to a file. Best of all is that \foo\bar will not copy into /foo/bar as expected on the unix server but instead create a new directory called /\foo\bar\/ - great fun!

rsync sits very uncomfortably in windoze.
