That's better. I read over the patch a little more closely this time and
have a few more comments:
1. The --remote-user option is unnecessary because you can instead
specify '-e "ssh -l <user>"'.
2. Please post the patch again against the latest development version
of rsync out of CVS (http://www.samba.org/samba/cvs.html or
rsync://rsync.samba.org/ftp/unpacked/rsync/) because that's the
form it will need to be in order to get it in. I'll test it out
then and look at it closely.
3. Please post the next patch with GNU diff's -u option. It's easier
