I think it's a good idea, so long as a remote user cannot dictate the
options to a running pserver. For all other invocation moethods, an
admin had better use something along the lines of to restrict what should
and should not be possible to run on the remote machine.

Also, when I have the time (i.e. - not soon :-( ), I will try to write a
"hardening rsync" howto, if you'll publish it.
