Also, it might be useful to note in the rsyncd.conf.5 that if you use 
Wayne's  supplementary group approach, it will require multiple rsync 

So it will fail if your 'max connections' is set to a number less than 
the number of simultaneous connections you'll be needing to satisfy 

I think this will be the number of alternative UIDs that you require 
in the rsyncd.conf.
