I said that this person said that cp will silently copy CORRUPTED files, 
not that it will silently CORRUPT files during the copy process.

Meaning - if a file is already corrupted, cp will silently copy it 
without complaint, but rsync won't.

Again, this is just what someone on the gentoo list claimed.
