This may be a stupid question, but if you already mirror full-monty, what
would you gain by also mirroring ftp.d.o on the same server?

But: if you insist: since filenames of the one are a subset of the other,
this sequence would save you from storing or downloading ftp.d.o twice:
- rsync ftp.d.o
- cp -rlu ftp/pool/* fullmonty/pool
- rsync fullmonty
