No, I guess it is clear enough. Sorry I have overlooked it somehow.
Anyway, I would propose to change --same-permissions/--no-same-permissions
option names to something more meaningful to avoid confusion. For

--same-permissions      --ignore-umask
--no-same-permissions   --apply-umask

(of course retaining old names for compatibility)
