thats what fcopy's recursion code is for: I am calling
fcopy -i -r .
in scripts/DEFAULT/S01recursive_fcopy.sh, that means at the really first
scripts step (the -i sets the exitcode always to 0, because if you are doing
a recursive fcopy, the probability of some not-matching files is high).
I am using this construct for at least 3 years now, so it should be pretty
