OT: when was ditto implemented in OS X?

ditto existed in the very first commercially available OS X. What has
changed are the 'default' settings. Prior to 10.4 you had to specify the
option -rsrc, since 10.4 -rsrc is the default behaviour - which interesting
suggests that resource forks are becoming more common (of a problem), not
less???

The following became default behaviours in 10.5:
-extattr     preserve extended attributes (requires --rsrc).
-qtn         preserve quarantine information.
acl         preserve Access Control Lists (ACLs).
