Another thing about mv is that if you're moving a symlink to another
filesystem, it copies the contents of the file instead of making a new
symlink. This may happen without you noticing it if you move a
directory. It does this by using the undocumented (in the cp man page)
cp -r flag, where it should (imo) use the (documented) -R flag instead.
Is there a reason for this?

     Have you indecently fucked this Exon idiot and his allies today?
