A fifth one: rsync, perhaps via ssh transport.

Yes, but IMHO this seems only a partial solution, as it does not take
care of the read-permission problem. ;-) 600 means only wwwrun or
root have read-access.

Well, the rsync daemon runs as root: it would have access:

An example that copies all the files in a remote module named
"src":

rsync -av host::src /dest

Some modules on the remote daemon may require authentication. If
so, you will receive a password prompt when you connect. You can
avoid the password prompt by setting the environment variable
RSYNC_PASSWORD to the password you want to use or using the
--password-file option. This may be useful when scripting rsync.

That's without ssh transport, but the manual explains how to add that.
Like:

rsync -av --rsh=ssh host::module /dest

There are many combinations. I think that the remote user can be
"www-run", but perhaps not if that requires a shell. I'm not sure about
that.
