rsyncing a .gz file is not very worthwhile
because the rsync algorithm does not do a good job of efficiently
transferring them, unless you've got a modified gzip that adds a
--rsyncable option and you used the option.

If I do a dry run, it appears that it will work
successfully, but when I remove the --dry-run, it fails.
