In distutils, both copy_file and copy_tree return the destination path(s), which is needed by many commands.  In packaging there is code to compute and return those paths, as shutil functions return None; I’d love to remove that code.

The bug I was thinking about is actually about copy(_)file parameters, not return value: #13336.
