Of course, the dummy module can do the same special authentication for
first-time clients that you would have had rsync do.  I left the first-time
authentication out of my demo because I wasn't sure how you wanted it done.

It would make more sense for rsync daemons to support PAM.  Then the
administrator could configure the PAM service to use LDAP or whatever.
