final "\" is the problem. I assume that
	rsync .... CTAN\systems\texlive\tlnet\2008
will do the trick, at least AFAIR. But this *is* documented in the "man
page" (the rsync.1 documentation in man/(g)roff format ;-)))

SUTTON and CHEAM (nouns)
Sutton and cheam are the kinds of dirt into which all dirt is
divided. 'Sutton' is the dark sort that always gets on to
light-coloured things, 'cheam' the light-coloured sort that clings to
dark items. Anyone who has ever found Marmite stains on a dress-shirt
or seagull goo on a dinner jacket (a) knows all about sutton and
cheam, and (b) is going to tome very curious dinner parties.
