Sure thing.  Question though - do we even want to propose the ssh 
option?  I was only suggesting it earlier because I didn't know of 
another way.  The rsync daemon is *much* simpler to setup (on 
mirror-side and server-side), has far fewer possibilities of failure, 
and does not need to follow the same configuration for every server.  
The only real pro seems to be security related, but even there, rsync 
is covered to a certain degree with the hosts allow option.  I'm 
perfectly happy with the rsync daemon :)
