[Dirvish] Does Windows rsync work with Dirvish?

According to the rsync man page, a double-colon ( :: ) in the data path
means it expects to see an rsync daemon installation on that side of the
link. A single colon ( : ) means rsync will use the remote-shell transport.
On my system, the remote-shell transport defaults to ssh, not rsh.
I'd like to gain some speed by dropping the encryption overhead of ssh. (My
"network" is a cross-over cable inside a locked server room, so there's no
risk of anyone snooping in my dirvish session.)

Well I'll really out myself here.........
I run dirvish between various machines in my local LAN, and I use no
encryption at all. Two of the machines backed up by dirvish every day are
Win XP machines and it works perfectly. The trick is the following:
Here is a default.conf from Dirvish:
The colon ":" before Dat tells it not to use SSH.
I have no idea whether cwrsync can support rsh or not.
