Both are pretty ridiculous, quite frankly.

Settle on a standard --exclude pattern, and you don't need two trees of 
any sort.

Currently, I believe --exclude *-DVD.iso should work, but --exclude 
*-DVD*.iso might be a better (future-proof) pattern.

One can easily export two different rsync modules with and without DVD 
images, if that's at all desirable, simply by putting the exclude 
pattern in rsyncd.conf.
