My bad. I'll fix it.

Yes, "srconly" is the same as wrapping in <not>. I added it as a sort of 
implicit documentation, to make it clear that you weren't going to end up 
getting files in the destination directory that were not already in the 
source directory (which would be another interpretation of <not>, but not 
one compatible with selectors).
