Because I want to run the backup as root (to avoid permission problems),
but I don't want to allow remote root logins (for security). Yes, there are
convoluted ways to do this with the backup initiated by the backup server,
but the easiest way is to start the backups on the client machine. I've
tried a number of ways of doing this, and this works well. You're welcome
to disagree, of course.
