New submission from Brandon Craig Rhodes <brandon at rhodesmill.org>:

The attached patch will bring Lib/copy.py to 100% test coverage.

A bug in "coverage" results in its only reporting 99% at the moment; see coverage issue #122 on bitbucket:


This patch makes several minor improvements to "copy": when doing getattr lookups with a default of "None", it now uses an "is" comparison against None which is both faster and more correct; several special cases have been removed since Python 3 always has "CodeType" available; and an ancient obsolete test suite that had been appended to copy.py in ancient times has been removed.
