I think there is not, and if there is, it is not more than a few

Assuming that mirror syncing happens incrementally in alphabetical
order, you will first get the updated [core] database (/core/ folder),
then the updated package files (/pool/ folder) and last the updated
[testing] database (/testing/ folder). I guess mirrors could even sync
completely before putting everything in place, although rsync can't do
that on its own, I think.
