Note that the script "rrsync" in the "support" dir is a perl script that
validates a restricted rsync command.  It lets you specify a subdir that
the user's command should not exit (and it also makes a pass through the
command-line arts to reject args that it doesn't like).

Matt's suggestion to switch over to a single-instance daemon is also a
good way to go.
