As I wrote earlier, I'd prefer that you use Emacs's copy-file
primitive to copy files.  That would certainly work on all supported
platforms, without requiring a cp that supports the -p option.  I
suspect that testing for the support of -p in a way that works on all
Windows shells would be a hard job anyway.
