Okay. I prepared the "zope.copy" package in the SVN for you to check
out what I mean. :)

>> The README.txt of zc.copy says that the components, provided by this
>> package is apropriate for inclusion in Zope itself.
>> The package provides a more pluggable mechanism for copying generic
>> persistent objects (not only ILocation's) as well as a way to register
>> post-copy hooks to be executed, which is very useful, for example when
>> dealing with persistent objects that have non-ZODB bits (like
>> filesystem based files related and so on). However, the package is
>> really small and mostly contains modified copies of
>> zope.copypastemove's ObjectCopier and zope.location's locationCopy.
>> So, I propose to merge the zc.copy package's changes with original
>> zope.copypastemove/zope.location and deprecate it. If noone objects,
>> I'll do that myself.
