interesting. what you mentioned are 'metadata' which
is very much OS dependent(NTFS has ACL, linux has
similar thing) that must be done in OS dependent way
like as you said os.execute().

This is pretty off-topic, but resource forks are not metadata. For example, a Mac OS 9 application typically has no data fork, only a resource fork. And many Mac OS X applications have a resource fork containing critical resources.

It's true though that a useful file copy would (at least optionally) preserve metadata.
