    Is it? Please explain the simple steps which cp(1) should take in order
    to observe that it is being asked to duplicate a file on a file system
    such as CIFS (or NFSv4?) which allows the client to issue a 'copy file'
    command over the network without actually transferring the data twice,
    and to invoke such a command.
