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
http://olivier.sessink.nl/jailkit/jk_lsh.8.html 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.
