Yes, indirectly.  You can set up dftp to exclude certain
directories.  I haven't checked out the new version of dftp which came
out a few days ago, so I won't try to tell you exactly how. 
Dftp brings back .deb files into the same directory hierarchy as
exists on the ftp site; so you can see whether you've gotten anything
in the debian-1.0 directory (or whatever the bleeding-edge directory
is called now, I haven't kept track).
