I think it would be better that if one is not root that the EPERM
error be ignored. This would then be the same as is done now for
the 'cp -a' operation or 'tar xf' or any of a number of other
operations that are silent about not being able to change the
That would work. Easy to implement too...
A nice feature would be to be able to set a enviromental variable that
would say if cp/mv/whatever should exit or just warn. Then one could
pick between the behaviours without having to modify a script etc.
