Command line not conform with mv/cp convention

This may not be regarded as a bug, but it actually affects and is sometimes

Suppose *foo* and *bar* are directories. When someone types:

*rsync foo/ bar*

rsync will sync foo/* into bar/

However, if he/she types:

*mv foo/ bar*

mv will move foo into bar/ and cp behaves like mv

I think the trailing / shouldn't matter so much. What matters should be the
asterisk after /

This is just a convention.
