Well, rsync isn't really /that/ useful for jigdo/template files
because the data of those files is compressed in an rsync-unfriendly
way with zlib...

wget's mirror functionality isn't great. You could try lftp instead,
it can omit the HTML files and also delete old files:

lftp -c 'open http://foo.com/bar/; mirror --verbose --delete . /tmp/bar'
