post transfer script for forcing perms

I'm looking to see of it is practical to have an rsync server run a script after 
a transfer finishes.  I am moving files (python source) from windows (common 
point of development) to a few linux machines.  big problem being 
owner/group/perms are always wrong and python's module install process is
fragile with respect to OGP.  Therefore, I want to run a script after 
transferring a set of files so I can correct all of the 
ownership/group/permissions from the Windows defaults to what I need.


(speech recognition in use, it makes mistakes, I can't keep up with them all)
