syntax for push to remote rsync server

In released versions of rsync, you can't combine ssh and daemon mode with
"::"; the -e command is ignored.  In the developer's version of rsync in CVS,
that functionality was recently added.   It's not clear whether or not
that's what you really want, however.  What features of the rsync daemon
mode were you hoping to take advantage of?
