no copy is performed.  A copy does stand a chance of being caught in the middle, but the timing
window is much, much smaller.  Best to use mv/rename whenever possible.

So 'touch' a .LCK file in a  place outside webapps, copy over the file, 
when copy done remove the .LCK file.
  On the server a background process is running watching for the .LCK 
file. when it's gone, it does the 'mv'.
(a mv can imply a copy though when it goes across filesystems on 
different drives).
