Not really. The interface to rsync is the command line, and perhaps any
output from the aplication. How rsync is implemented (including it's
dependence on rsh) is not defined by the LSB. In otherwords, LSB provided
commands do not themselves have to be LSB conformant. Usualy, it is trivial
to ensure that they are, but it is not required. The requirment on LSB commands
is that the provide the behavior defined.
