Firstly, that syntax is wrong: it's --rsh=ssh combined with a deamon
source/destination (host::module), and yes it does simplify things, but
no the connection does not happen via sockets (since it's entire purpose
is to encrypt the connection over a secure transport such as ssh).
Since the transfer is happening via the remote shell, it will be
susceptible to the same pipe-related hangs as a normal non-daemon
