   Hello, I want to ask the developers what do they think about
   implementing a way to do "cp -r .* target" (copy files and
   directories starting with dot) without copying the parent directory
   ".." (I think that's what the user usually intends to do)

Won't work, globs is expanded by the shell not by cp.
