Actually it isn't.  An rsync 'module' doesn't have to have a direct
relation to the filesystem layout exposed by ftp or http.

Actual output of rsync:

[jmorris at odin whitebox]$ rsync rsync://ftp.riken.jp/Linux/whitebox
Welcome to the RIKEN ftp/http/rsync server.
@ERROR: Unknown module 'Linux'
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (375 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(165)

While the listed URL says:

[jmorris at odin whitebox]$ rsync rsync://ftp.riken.jp/whitebox

Same with that one.  I did actually test em before listing them, despite
some of the more truly boneheaded mistakes I have been caught out in on
these lists.  :)
