Watch for undocumented behavior of cp -R

Yes, this is what I did in Panther because I like the SysV/GNU tools more than the BSD ones. However, the Fink GNUtools don't have patches (afaik) to handle resource forks, unlike the new Tiger-versions of the BSD tools.

Hence, if you care more about resource forks, etc. than ease-of-use you should stick with the BSD ones in Tiger.
