That works. However, when I try to get the alpha-6 release, I get:

$ rsync rsync://cdimage.ubuntu.com/cdimage/releases/hardy/alpha-6/hardy-desktop-i386.iso
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [receiver]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at
io.c(454) [receiver=2.6.9]

Either a bug here, or I am confused. If I am confused, then zsyncs are
easier to use :).
