There is a cachedir standard: http://www.brynosaurus.com/cachedir/spec.html for a file marker for cache directories.

--exclude-if-present is almost right, but the cachedir spec says to also check the content of the marker file.

It would be nice to add options like tar: http://www.gnu.org/software/tar/manual/html_section/exclude.html
