--- Comment #7 from Kevin Korb <rsync at sanitarium.net> ---
I have been thinking about this a bit and I believe it is a sudo problem and
not an rsync problem.  It is not rsync's job to secure the command line.  Plus
rsync is far from the only program that uses popt to parse the command line and
therefore not the only program that would be affected by this problem.

However, I do think that Wayne should add at least one of your patches since
this would also affect rrsync and other forms of ssh ForcedCommands.

Note that I don't know much about popt and might be missing something
