Do any specifications dictate this feature? What is it, anyway?
It has been awhile since I've read the SUSv2 page on cp, but I highly
doubt it is there.
Perhaps the GNU people should at least inform people that this is a non-standard
feature. Personally, I think it should be axed.. there is nothing
worse then seeing a linux admin stumble around a UNIX box when he is hired by
a non-linux-using company....
