D'oh! I just looked at an OS X system...

I didn't realise ditto was an Apple supplied command :)

I just tried the setuid bit and it works except for one small thing... It creates the destination file as root.

So if you do "ditto foo bar" then bar is owned by root and you'll need to sudo chown <yourname>.[admin|staff] and possibly reset the permissions on it.

Oh well... maybe a wrapper program could sort that out...
