actually we can get rid of ssh entirely as well and just use pipes
between the rdiff-backup and "rdiff-backup --server"... to reduce the
variables even further.

when i compare:

        rdiff-backup src dst1


        rdiff-backup --remote-schema '%s' src 'rdiff-backup --server'::dst2

i'm seeing an avg of 0.9s real-time for the first and 1.4s real-time
for the second using an extracted copy of rdiff-backup-1.0.4.tar.gz as
the src.  (the results are quite repeatable so i didn't bother with a
larger src.)

my suspicion would be something serializing in the protocol...
