(Bash) relay files via tar+ssh+cat

rsync doesn’t like to copy files from host to host. This is sort of the “old school” unix way – tar everything to a pipe, then pipe everything out. It’s how we used to copy directories remotely before we had tools like rsync. I’m definitely open to suggestions on how to improve this (even a fix for rsync, if I’m wrong)
