Summary: document that shutil.copyfileobj does not seek()

Initial Comment:
This should close bug 1656578 which asks for documentation that shutil.copyfileobj() copies only from the current file position to the end of the file. While this is standard behavior for pretty much any function that accepts a file-like object, the phrase "the contents of the file-like object" could be confusing. The patch adds a little clarification text.
