Yes, that's an alternative. I can't see a difference in functionality nor
risk between the two, though.

I agree entirely. I made that statement to further justify my cause. I will
be trying to move away from the root account, but, as you say, this is
entirely independent of any rsync matters.

OK, will do. Thanks for the pointer. I had checked the archives, but not
found anything. Alas, I hadn't looked for "authorized_keys" but rather
"SSH", "restrict", "command" and the like. That hadn't turned up anything
(not within the first couple of dozen hits anyway). 

Thanks again and be seeing y'all.
