I was under the impression that most sites mirrored "ftp" rsync target.
Pretty sure the "community" target was only recently added...
In the event that I am correct, a top level iso directory would still be
mirrrored just fine.

Splitting them out would be a great benefit to sites that *do* only want
to mirror current, extra, and community. As it stands right now, they get
the isos too with the current target..so they have to exclude that dir
manually in their rsync pull (which isn't really a big deal).

It just seems to me that it would be cleaner to have iso's living in their
own place.
