...and then Marty Leisner said...
% I'm not sure I find that really useful (when I'm copying one file,
% I can do

% in another window)

Yep.  Or even -s...

% But I would like to see some type of status when moving trees -- -v 

What, du (or, better yet, df) isn't good enough for you? ;-)

% is too much...maybe a status every N files or N bytes moved?
% Something more generic than this?
% Maybe something like that could accomplish you're purpose too?

The patch sounds neat, though I haven't tried it yet.  Maybe bbloatware,
but quite handy.
