As the thread that Matt pointed out mentions, -e is completely safe as long as
the command has the --server option.  The rrsync script requires it to be the
first option on the command-line, which is an easy check and works for normal
cases (and can even work with someone who is passing --rsync-path="rsync
--options" as long as the user specifies their own --server option as the first

One thing that rsync 3 could be improved to do is to omit that "e..." sequence
if --protocol=29 is specified.  That would at least make it easy for a user to
communicate with an overly restrictive server that won't update their software.
