Looking at this again, it seems that --compress is valid, just not in 
conjunction with --daemon. Here's the error that results from running 
'rsync --daemon --compress':

$ rsync --daemon --compress
rsync: --compress: unknown option (in daemon mode)
(Type "rsync --daemon --help" for assistance with daemon mode.)
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at options.c(732)
