Big mirrors already have it for other distros, so it won't be a pain.
What I do is exclude the isos, build them here (the jigdo script
automatically calls rsync to adjust times/perms/etc.) then remove the
exclusion. At the next run the isos will be new files but when rsync
looks it finds them already so they're just skiped.
