Wayne, I guess if you apply standard shell escaping logic you end up
with a string which isn't processed correctly, yes, ssh complains, but
only because Rsync passed the backslashes through without dealing with
them. My opinion is that if Rsync is splitting a string based on
whitespace it also needs to take into account backslashes.
