Newbie to RSYNC.
I notice that RSYNC (see RSYNCD.CONF doc) when run as a server daemon has
the "dont compress" option which does not compress already compress files
like "*.zip".
Is there any way to do this with regular RSYNC?

I presume one way to do this is a two step process:
* first transfer only compress files like "*.zip" without the "-z" option
* then transfer all remaining files with the "-z" (compress option) but
using the "--exlude="*.zip"" option?
