[New-bugs-announce] [issue27252] Make dict views copyable

New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

Proposed patch adds support of dict views in the copy module.

Since dict views are immutable, copy.copy() just returns the same object.

copy.deepcopy() returns a frozenset for the dict_keys object, a tuple for the dict_values object, and a dict_items object for the dict_items object. Only needed data is copied (keys for dict_keys, values for dict_values).
