As long as remote/old is a path inside the backup module, and is on the
same filesystem as the remote/new path inside the backup module, it
should work fine. If you're using at least 3.0.0, it will alert you if
you have specified a directory that does not exist. If it's not
working, check the version of the destination rsync so we can see if
it is old enough to have a bug that might affect the linking.
