Q:  Can I set the snapshot_root to a remote SSH path? I want to push my
	backups to a remote server, rather than pull them from a remote server.

A: 	Currently this is not possible. This would be a nice feature, but several
    questions remain unanswered:

	* How can the integrity of the snapshot root be guaranteed if one or more
	remote servers have write access to it?

	* When snapshots are rotated, which of the potentially several remote
	servers connecting is responsible for performing this task?

	* One possibility is to have a "staging" area for files to be transferred
	to, then have rsnapshot sync from this staging area into the snapshot root.
	Can this be accomplished without taking up double the disk space?
