This seems pretty kludgey to me. I wouldn't want to install GnuWin32
utilities on a production system just for the "cp" command, and I don't
know how I would tune holdtime properly for using "copy". And it seems
risky to have defaults that are known to not work reliably.
How about implementing a replacement function for "cp" ourselves? It
seems pretty trivial to do. We could use that on Unixes as well, which
would keep the differences between Win32 and other platforms smaller,
and thus ensure the codepath gets more testing.
