Since we seem to have agreed that the -v output should stay exactly as
it is to support scripts, I'd like to have a regression test which
checks that: copy a few files using -v, and diff the output.

If we have stronger tests, then we can be more confident in making
performance or functionality improvements without breaking existing

(I'm sure this is preaching to the choir for most of you.)
