rsync'ing an rdiff-backup repository

I'm rsync'ing an rdiff-backup repository to a different machine and I
have a few questions I'm hoping you guys can help me out with.
Should I use --archive? Or maybe -rlD instead?
Can I restrict an SSH key to rsync? I can do it with rdiff-backup
with command="rdiff-backup --server" but I can't figure out how to do
it with rsync.
The rdiff-backup repository I'm syncing from is on a USB hard disk. I
do want to use --delete so I'm worried that the repository copy could
be deleted if the USB disk is not mounted. Am I better off creating a
second rdiff-backup repository instead of rsync'ing the first one?
