We do some sanity tests that span the buildsys, the intermediary host 
and the final rsync targets. So its important that the first set of 
contents is sync'd out from the buildsys as-is. Perhaps extra caution, 
but we have had problems in the past ( even with rsync saying two files 
are identical when they were clearly not ).

On the other hand, the ISOS can be fairly easily re-created from the 
tree, so if the rpms tree are is already in place that would be easier 
than going down the tar route.
