Right. Point taken, I just added an RSYNC_EXTRA option. Will be empty by
default, can be set by the local admin. What you set there will end up
as the FIRST option on the rsync command line.

So it can be used to add stuff like -4/-6 or maybe temporarily a -c or
so, but one should ensure it doesn't conflict with one of the later
rsync options. (And it especially shouldnt be used for stuff like
--exclude on debian mirrors :) ).

Because the majority of them are not official architectures and as such
"aren't there", for all ftpsync cares. Also, setting these as
arch_exclude for Debian mirrors right now means you achieve nothing
except further complicating the rsync commandline (lots of --excludes
will get build up), as none of them CAN be excluded, as they arent there.

Some of them you find if you mirror debian-ports, some of them might
appear elsewhere. And yes, maybe one or two of them may appear in Debian
at some point.

Well. That is one reason (though a small one) why we want to switch to
inclusive syncing. You once say what you want, not always what you not
