Chris Jerdonek added the comment:

Before we discuss wording, it's not clear to me whether all possibilities have been checked.  I count 2*3*2=12 possibilities to check (excluding src and dst being on different filesystems):

src: file or directory
dst: file, empty directory, or non-empty directory
os:  Unix or Windows

Also, do we have tests for all of these scenarios before we document it?
