New submission from Evan Dandrea <ev at ubuntu.com>:

The attached patch increases the coverage in shutil.  It makes the following changes:
 - Tests the code paths for file and directory copies across filesystems by mocking out rename.
 - Adds a test for shutil.copy.
 - Adds a test for shutil.copy2.
 - Tests shutil.unpack_archive with the format specified.
 - Tests the code path for creating the target directory in _make_tarball.

I have tested this on Ubuntu natty and OSX 10.6.6.  Note that this will fail until http://bugs.python.org/issue11548 is applied.
