      eh. it was supposed to be better formatted.

      => mkdir conf; mkdir conf/devel; touch conf/a

      => find conf
      conf
      conf/devel
      conf/a

      => cp -R conf/* conf/devel/
      cp: cannot copy a directory, `conf/devel', into itself, `conf/devel/devel'

      => find conf
      conf
      conf/devel
      conf/devel/a
      conf/devel/devel
      conf/devel/devel/a
      conf/a

      one level too deep, but it stopped quickly. standard bash from ubuntu.
