       -v, --verbose
              explain what is being done

hmmm, all it does is write "a -> b" which isn't verbose enough.  Ok,
add a -vv.  And when it does nothing, it says nothing, even about why
a -u test chose not to copy.  Also cp -vs output is just like cp -v,
which by saying a -> b looks like it made a symlink in the first
place.  Being such a let down, I didn't bother to see what the rest of
the other options didn't say when used with -v.
