Thanks for the suggestion Brian.

I would prefer to use[[user]@host::]path , but based on my reading of 
the man page and examples, it requires rdiff-backup to be available on 
the remote server which unfortunately is not the case in my situation.

I don't see anything in the rdiff-backup man page or examples indicating 
you can use URIs.  Can you be more specific about where it shows that?
