Port-forwarding 22 is a great idea as long as ssh is configured not to
complain about the host conflict -- nicely done. I've added this to the
FAQ in the "rsync through a firewall" section.
I also changed the suggested rsync command in the first method to make
the system names more intuitive than the previous method.

Not when using -f -- that tells ssh to disconnect from the terminal and
run in the background.
