Using rsync to keep a local mirror - way to not download 64?

I keep a local mirror since i keep multiple computers synced and want to save bandwidth.

But now I have an x86_64 mirror for which I have no use. Is there some way to *not* download those files?

It is very simple! I use:

rsync -rptvz --delete rsync.archlinux.org::current/os/i686 /mnt/storage1/mirror/current/os/

Note that I use -rptvz instead of -avz. IMHO this is better.

But why do you mirror whole repos when there is an easier way.
I'm going to write howto on wiki. I don't like this way - it wastes bandwidth, time and money.
