  // Make a temporary directory to copy to.  There are three
  // cases to consider:
  // 1. rsync @src:file.txt @dest:location
  // 2. rsync @src:dir @dest:location
  // 3. rsync @src:dir/ @dest:location
  // We will explain each of these in turn.
  // 1. Copy a single file.  We'll split this up like so:
  //    rsync @src:file.txt /tmp/tmpdir
  //    rsync /tmp/tmpdir/file.txt @dest:location
  // Since /tmp/tmpdir is empty, we could also rsync from
  // '/tmp/tmpdir/' if we wished.
  // 2. Copy a directory. A directory with the same name
  // is copied to the destination.  We'll split this up like so:
  //    rsync @src:dir /tmp/tmpdir
  //    rsync /tmp/tmpdir/dir @dest:location
  // The result is that everything in 'dir' is copied to @dest,
  // and ends up in 'location/dir'.
  // 3. Copy the contents of a directory.  We will split this
  // up as follows:
  //    rsync @src:dir/ /tmp/tmpdir
  //    rsync /tmp/tmpdir/ @dest:location
  // After the first rsync, everything in 'dir' will end up in
  // tmpdir.  The second rsync copies everything in tmpdir to
  // @dest:location without creating an encapsulating folder
  // in the destination (i.e. there is no 'tmpdir' in the destination).
  // All three of these cases need to be handled correctly in order
  // to ensure the correct results.  In all cases the first
  // rsync always copies to $tmpDir, however the second rsync has
  // two cases that depend on the source path.  If the source path ends
  // in /, the contents of a directory have been copied to $tmpDir, and
  // the contents of $tmpDir must be copied to the destination.  Otherwise,
  // a specific file or directory has been copied to $tmpDir and that
  // specific item, identified by basename($source_path) must be copied to
  // the destination.
