If it were'nt just one file, having -v and -r and -D and not having --inplace
on rsync would be unfair. Only for a single file like this you can get away
with it.
Also it doesn't affect speed but -a already includes -p.

Actually lots of rsync options and default behavior do not fairly compare to
cp, but at the very least, add -W to rsync to compare it against cp. It'll
still be slower.
