same system syncs of filesystems, yet changing ownerships;

I'm setting up to sync files from a staging env to a prodution env, such 
that the filesystems for both are served via nfs to their respective 
systems.  Thus, I can do the rsync on the nfs server as a 'advanced cp'.

rsnyc $parms filessystem filesystem2

Due to ownerships and permissions, I have to run this as root, but, I'd 
like the files to belong to another user and group then roots upon 
syncing.  Is this possible without having to make it more ssh like and 
put the added overhaed into the transaction?

responces prefered to the ron.dufresne at address.

                  you'll always have it.
