Point is, we can't define the attributes by their shell equivalent. For
example, we must say "recursive", not "-R". We must say "archive", not "-a".
This way, people coding in C, for example, can find ways of doing this stuff
in C, not by calling cp.

We can implement some basic ones, like the recursive tag. But for more
complicated operations, either use a <system> tag or use multiple <copy> tags
(dunno about the exact naming).

A general check-for-failure procedure is needed, this should be expanded
upon. I have no idea right now.
