           Summary: PATCH SUBMITTED: New Feature: stdio model for client
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: samba at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

I've created a simple patch that allows the user to specify '&<integer>' for
the hostname which causes it to use that specified file-descriptor as an
already connected socket so that a program can connect for rsync,
pre-communicate and then exec rsync (the normal stdio model).

The existing --rsh feature can perhaps just barely be used to do this if you
bend over backwards, but this simplifies it.  But this allows the connection to
be made  BEFORE even executing rsync rather than vice-versa.

I've also updated the man page.  I didn't know what else might need to be
updated.  I'll be glad to enhance it further if necessary
