If rsync for some reason doesn't complete, it should output the path of the last file that was correctly transferred.
This will help with workarounds and perhaps also with bug reports.

isn`t using "-v" sufficient here ? or using the logging features? if that`s too much output, you could combine that with "tail -n ###".
there are several options for NOT completing: maybe it unexpectedly hangs, maybe it crashes.
so, how should rsync print only the "last" correctly transferred file, if it doesn`t know that it hangs or that it crashed ?
I mean that when it crashes and gives a source filename and line number, it should also report the last successful file transfer. With or without -v.
I mean that when it prints a crash message giving file name and line number, it should also give this information, with or without -v.
