The environment variable RSYNC_PASSORD and commandline parameter 
--password-file= are for authenticating against an rsync server.  If 
you're going through ssh, you don't have an rsync question.  If you can't 
"ssh remotehost date" without a password, rsync isn't going to fake up a 
tty and play expect with ssh for you.  Make a passphraseless ssh key, and 
keep it out of the hands of your enemies.  You can even set the 
authorized_keys file to permit only rsync to be run over that session.
