Filelist caching

I've noticed every time someone does an rsync-request on my ftp-site
(which also provides rsync as mirror method), rsyncd creates a filelist.
This is a quite IO and CPU intensive procedure, especially for things
mirrors like FreeBSD with lots of little files. 

I was wondering... is there a way to cache that filelist? Our mirrors
are updated once, or twice a day, it could speed up downloads when I
create a filelist everytime we've mirrored others.
