Remember that the rsync daemon runs as "nobody" by default.  You can
change that, if you like.  Also remember that the destination directory
needs to be writable by rsync, not just the file that is being received
(since rsync creates a temp file and then renames it).  You can work
around that restriction using the --temp-dir option.
