The only way at present is to login as that user on the destination

rsync -av /src/ applpatch at host:/dest/

sudo -u applpatch rsync -av appltest at host:/src/ /dest/

rsync -av --rsync-path='sudo -u appltest rsync' /src/ host:/dest/

Things like that.

It the future, it might be nice to have some way to add custom mappings.
The code already creates a name-to-number mapping for the receiver.  It
should be easy to pre-load the mapper based on a simple input file.
