Faster cygwin rsync ssh

I was wondering if there were any flags, patches, etc, that can speed up
rsync over SSH between two Win2k boxes running cygwin?
I am setting up a system where these machines can sync off each other, and
they potentially might transfer up to a Gig of data, so a little bit more
speed goes a long way. These machines will be on the same local network.
In my tests I have both plugged into the same 10/100 switch and file
transfers over SMB are much much faster than over rsync with ssh. I would
expect some slowdown using rsync and ssh due to increased overhead and the
way cygwin deals with pipes, etc, but I would like the speed to be better.
I don't want to drop ssh either.
Any advice would be great. Thanks.
