One buglet:  in util.py, copy_file, the order of the chmod and utime need
to be swapped to:

        if preserve_times:
            os.utime (dst, (st[ST_ATIME], st[ST_MTIME]))
        if preserve_mode:
            os.chmod (dst, S_IMODE (st[ST_MODE]))

(otherwise the chmod can prevent the utime from doing its thing).
