           Summary: automatic module creation with rights on server
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.9
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: kilburna at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

A typical module would be

path = /var/rbackup/[module_name]
read only = false
list = false
uid = uiduser
gid = gigusers
transfer logging = yes
log format = [%a] %o %m (%u) %f %l
auth users = auth_username
secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.secrets
incoming chmod = ugo+rwx
hosts allow = *

When the client connects for the first time the path, rights, rsyncd.secrets an
d rsyncd.conf is appended/created automatically. The infomation is obtained
from the client. The server would not first check if the module credentials
exist, if not, then create and then authenticate (although this is not
necessary the first time round)

I do not think this is possible with the pre-xfer exec statement.
