dired-mode works lacks support of common tasks

It seems there is no simple way to copy or delete (recursively) a
directory in dired mode.  Is it intentional for some reason?  I doubt
it is in any way difficult to implement.

What i think would be logical is when i hit C on a directory, Emacs
automatically determines that it needs to do a recursive copy and
doesn't even bother asking me anything.  And the same for d, x (maybe
with a more impressive confirmation prompt, since recursive deletion
of a directory is not something one would like to do accidentially).
