"Combining "::" syntax with the -rsh/-e option now uses the specified
remote-shell as a transport to talk to a (newly-spawned) server-daemon.
This allows someone to use daemon features, such as modules, over a
secure protocol, such as ssh."

Would ssh work with 'virtual user' concept that is possible with daemon
option with the new 2.5.6 version, or would it need a real unix user?
