In a temporary directory I tried to 'cp -a' over a symbolic link, and I got
a 'Permission denied'. 'cp -af' works though.
Hard links will be copied as regular files. I never checked if Coreutils
creates any hard links. They may decide one day to hard link 'md5sum'
to 'sha1sum', since they share a lot of code.
I'll add the -f to the Coreutils page.
