sounds really cool and useful (especially as it would just as well allow 
to seemlessly copy to remote), but makes wonder what is cp for nowadays we 
have rsync?

just in case cp still has something not in rsync, shouldn’t we ask the 
coreutils people (current maintainer?) what could it be, so we’d know as 
well it would be neat to integrate it/them into rsync so the decision of 
switching from cp to rsync would be purely positive in any respect (and 
maybe also other places as well)
