[rdiff-backup-users] feature request: readonly without arguments

Currently --restrict-read-only requires path to be specified. I'm doing 
backups over ssh and I'm forcing some command on server:

$ more .ssh/authorized_keys
-n 20 /usr/bin/rdiff-backup --server" ...

I want to restrict it to be read-only but there is problem. I'm doing backup 
of different directories like /home, /var/lib etc in separate commands.

Unfortunately --restrict-read-only / won't work if I'm doing backup of /etc - 
it complains:

Warning Security Violation!
Request to handle path /etc
which doesn't appear to be within restrict path /.

Feature req is option to restrict read-only to all operations without need to 
specify option or fix rdiff-backup to work with cases as this one.
