  ok so basically that would (invoke with SETUID) be to invoke rsync daemon 
as root for example? More
or less I have to run the daemon as root to be able to update files for all 
users dont I? For example if I want
to rsync the homedirs area, I have to run the deamon as root or run a 
seperate rsync per homedir/UID?

thanks Andy.
