If cp had every feature of rsync then it would be rsync.

  $ ls -ldogh /bin/cp /usr/bin/rsync | awk '{print $3, $7}'
  116K /bin/cp
  393K /usr/bin/rsync

And if you would like to have one of the features available in rsync
then it is better to be using rsync instead.


P.S. The old V7 cp executable was only 3.2K.
