Perhaps, I haven't tried this particular use case,
however, usually it just duplicates them.
Think about the local case. There it just does a rename.
I don't think they would deliberately allow custom ACL's to be tossed
just because the copy was to a different device.
But, once you had the files in place, wouldn't an rsync
from old to new, fix up just the ACL's?
If rsync won't work, then use "cp":
> cp -rd --attributes-only /old /new
Is there a reason why that wouldn't (or shouldn't)
