Hmm, yes, rsync isn't that server friendly but just downloading large
files without actually syncing them against local files isn't so much
worse then any other method. rsync against the main archive is another
story, of course. ;) Another thing is that rsync for ISOs is only used
by very few people compared to ftp/http, so no restrictions are applied
