The version of rsync in CVS has an option named --chmod that lets you
request permission changes for the copied files, so using that as the
client version for the copy would allow you to specify "--chmod=o+w" to
ensure that write permissions were enabled for the owner.  It also has
new daemon options that allow chmod changes to be made to files coming
to and going from a daemon module: "incoming chmod" & "outgoing chmod".
This would allow you to specify "outgoing chmod = o+w" in the module's
config and upgrade just the rsync used by the daemon (the client rsyncs
wouldn't need to know about the --chmod option in this scenario).
