I wonder what would be the best way to implement this in dired: get code
from coreutils (that updates directories like `cp -u', moves directories
between partitions etc.), or make dired commands to run coreutils commands
like `cp' and `mv' directly with appropriate switches.  It seems strange
that dired uses external commands like `ls', and doesn't use `cp' and `mv'.

Because no one wrote the emulators cp-lisp.el and mv-lisp.el yet?
