null if
    + *     the source does not exist.

    + *     set, then the file will not be copied unless the source is newer than the target.

    + *     file operations that are performed.

    Yes, there could easily be cases this is called when no logging is desired. And logging
to the console is a bad default for any Cordova code, because any logging should go through
the events pipeline.
