I have just implemented a file distribution process at work. We use
rsync over ssh (as we want the ssh encryption and didn't want the extra
security risk of having an extra open port on the box). We then
distribute one ssh key that runs a script that enforces that only rsync
is allowed to run with some restricted arguments and the source has to
be a subdirectory of the distribution path.

I could write something similar for cygwin if needed. Maybe with
individual keys and allowed paths.
