Preserve extended attributes while copy

Extended attributes are nice to store comments and keywords to files.

Set an extended attribute to a file:
$ attr -s variable -V "value" filename.txt

Now see it:
$ attr -l filename.txt

If you copy such file with mc, extended attribute will be absent for file's copy.
It would be nice to have an option like "preserve Extended attributes" to let mc copy extended attributes as well.
