equivalence of gzipped and non-gzipped files?

I'm trying to get a backup system going using rsync --- bit of a newbie.
Just wondering if there is a way I can get rsync to recognise that a
non-gzipped file in one directory tree is equivalent to the same gzipped file
in the (say backup) tree, or vice versa. Could this be done with the
include/exclude features? I note that gzip doesn't alter the timestamp on a
file when it zips it and I'd be happy enough to use this only to verify when
files were last altered.
