I was thinking more along the lines of creating a proxy for all of
your rsync requests.

You would not necessarily have to do any special configuration to
squid (except allow CONNECT with port 873, something I know has to be
done with mod_proxy), it should route the request itself.  Apache with
mod_proxy would work as well.
