I finally got rsync working on Windows w/o the full cygwin install, more
or less and with ssh.
Use rsync from backuppc's cygwin-rsyncd.  Install the basic Cygwin install
with rsync and ssh as well.  Then copy backuppc's rsync, the latest
cygwin dll, ssh, cygz.dll, and cygcrypto-0.9.7.dll from the cygwin install
to a separate folder and it should work.  Any other version of rsync gave
me errors that went something like "Connection to peers."  Sorry, don't
remember, exactly the error message.
