I don't see why that would be desirable, as long as libcurl continues
to support it for free.

I thought the real rationale was to avoid creating the illusion of
supporting push over ftp. Having a paper trail to comfort people who
notice when rsync support vanishes is just an added bonus.

I'd suggest dropping ", and will soon be removed." or replacing it
with ". Don't use them." to avoid the question of how soon "soon" is.
With that change and with a clearer commit message, this will probably
be good to go imho.
