:       OK plug away - why is cpdup better than rsync ?

    Hardlinks aren't well supported, chflags aren't supported at all,
    and rsync does not scale well for large filesystems.  At least that
    is my experience.  Don't get me wrong, rsync is a cool little program...
    but it isn't very efficient.
