I recently saw a port for that type of work.
The port can also be configured to use unison instead of rsync.
Plan to try the port this weekend and will report back to the list.

True, but it's more secure than a regular shell.
My plan is to setup a long password, which I will
never use, and to setup a passwordless key.
* Machine A where data will be copied
Has passwordless key
Data will be copied to it.
* Machine B has public key in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2
User has scponly shell
User has very long password, which I never plan to use.
Data is coming from that machine
