Followup to my own post: I just tried the same thing on FreeBSD, and
got the same results, so apparently the behavior is considered correct
by more than one -dev team.
Now that I think about it, it is consistent with the behavior of cp
and mv. So...maybe it doesn't violate the principle of least surprise
as much as I originally thought.
