The rsync can be to a remote machine, we rsync to a remote copy of stuff for
backups, and have an archive directory where changes are kept. If you dont
want to run the rsyncd on each machine with a rule allowing contact to /etc
or wherever from one machine, you can use -e ssh (so long as it doesnt
proimpt from the backup machine)
