Is it possible to use the "--delete" switch with a date stamp eg mtime?

I want to delete files in the dest dir but only if they are older than a
certain date.  I can't see a way of doing this with an rsync command
itself - I would have to do a find first and pipe the results to rsync
(which I am trying to avoid).
