Actually, it indicates an rsync module defined for the rsync daemon
running on the client; it has nothing to do with choosing between ssh
This is actually an "automagical" thing:
rsync [options] client:tree /localtree
This will do ssh by default. If "tree" begins with a colon, then it
rsync [options] client::tree /localtree
and then rsync interprets "tree" to be an rsync module.
Dirvish does _nothing_ special with the colon; rsync does.
To use rsh instead of ssh, in the config, do:
This will tell dirvish to explicitly pass "-e /bin/rsh" as an option to
rsync, otherwise rsync will default to ssh (at least, any reasonably
recent version will, and if you use an older version, you should upgrade
for all sorts of reasons!).
