Hmmm without being a maintainer. I would say cp -r is most used on 
single disk, so one thread is using the maximum disk iops taking y time 
to copy. What would solve using multiple threads each taking their share 
of the maximum disk iops, and because of the scheduling and other 
overhead finishing later than y time?

Hi folks,

Is there something philosophically incorrect in making a “cp”
multi-threaded and allow for parallel copies when “cp -r” is done? If 
it’s something that’s possible, are there any plans in making a 
multi-threaded cp?

I’m not a member of the list so I kindly request you cc me on the 

Thank you.
