Thats a good idea, we should plumb that into the checking scripts.

Also, internally all the centos machines run 2 rounds of rsync, the 
first one runnging with an --exclude='repodata/' and without the 
--delete. The second one has --delete, but no excludes, so that way we 
try and make sure the time that a machine might not be in a 'good' state 
is reduced quite a bit.
