Actual usernames are irrelevant going to an rsyncd (case where secrets 
file would come into play), as the user is defined in the "auth users" 
line for the module.  Since the "secrets file" line is also per-module, 
there's no reason you can't define each module with the same "auth user" 
list and per-module "secrets file".

I am planning on rsyncing between 3 different computers that all have the
same username, but different passwords.  Is there a way to specify which
user from which host belongs to which password?  Or do I have to use
different users between the 3 boxes?
Thanks for the help,
