Hi! I'm new here, so I ask for your patience :)

Some xattrs can't be copied between filesystems. For instance, compressed btrfs 
has a "btrfs.compression" xattr.
When rsync -X is used in this situation, it exits with error code 23 (partial 
file/attr), which seems dangerous to be ignored.

Would it be reasonable to filter filesystem-specific flags when transferring to 
a different filesystem by default (I'm not sure all fs follows the same 
namespace, but maybe they start with "filesystem.*"?)? Maybe -XX could be used 
to force it.
