I'm no rsync genius, but using the scp like syntax I can't seem to get it to
copy from remote server to remote server.

mkdir "/home/sbh/root@shapeshifter:/mnt/aux/tulip" failed: No such file or directory
rsync error: error in file IO (code 11) at main.c(346)
Now, I double-checked on shapeshifter and /mnt/aux/tulip exists, I'm not really
sure why it's putting that directory name in the front of it, or how to stop
that from happening, but at this point in time it looks like a rsync bug to me.
Changing version number, forgot to update initally
As the man page indicates, one end of the connection must be local. Just use
ssh to run the command on one of the remote machines.
