If you ssh into the B system and run the rsync command there, you can
write the batch on the destination system that way.  If you can't ssh
back into A to make the copy, you could check into ssh's port-forwarding
options, and use a temporary rsync daemon on A for B to access.

I don't plan to make the server able to output the batch file -- I think
it's best that the client does that.
