In order to get a full daily backup of everything on remote machines,
it's really our only choice.  The ssh authorized key on the remote
machine can be limited to run only a single command (rsync, with the
appropriate options), and this is how things are normally setup.  The
machine that initiates the rsyncing lives behind a firewall and does
not have normal user accounts.
