I've just checked in some additional tweaks that implement one more
thing:  we look for the RSYNC_RSH_IO environment variable to allow the
user to set the blocking IO for the remote shell specified by the
RSYNC_RSH environment variable (it does not affect rsync if the remote
shell does not match the RSYNC_RSH value, so an override still gets its
proper default setting).  I also updated the man page to indicate that
ssh is now the default remote shell, and to document RSYNC_RSH_IO.
