User very much wants to know where the files _will go_ before daring to try an actual run.
He tries even
rsync -vv --dry-run --itemize-changes -avz x.y.z:dir1/dir2/backup/ backup/
but still there is no way to make it say
File x.y.z:dir1/dir2/backup/F1 will be copied to backup/F1
File x.y.z:dir1/dir2/backup/F2 will be copied to backup/F2

I was hoping for something simple like
$ cp -v m n
'm' -> 'n'
i.e., like a theoretical cp --dry-run -v
with no need for complicated %'s.
