Maybe YOU have no idea what you're talking about?
One thing is to encrypt your communication channel (by using SSH in this case), and another COMPLETELY different one is to encrypt your file on the remote filesystem/host.
You could use GPG for that, but the generated file wouldn't be rsync-friendly. This tool generates encrypted files that are rsync-friendly. If you don't know what that means, you'd better read rsync documentation on how it works :-P
