You have lost the thread's start:
George's problem has been that he could not move an object
in an *EXTERNAL METHOD*, i.e. in trusted filesystem code.
He would have the same problem in a filesystem product.
The problem is that "CopySupport" performs a local security
check (in "_verifyObjectPaste") independent from its caller
(it does not matter whether the rename/move/copy was
called from trusted or untrusted code).
With appropriate proxy roles, an untrusted Python Script can perform some
rename/move/copy that trusted code is unable to perform.
I assume you can agree that this is a somewhat unsane situation...
