I've found a need for the following function:

def copyfile(fin, fout):
	while 1:
		buf = fin.read(4096)
		if not buf:

In several different places (modules I've written, SimpleHTTPServer uses
it, urllib has that code inlined somewhere, etc.)

(Of course, 4096 should be a parameter, but that's nits)

Can anyone suggest a module in which this function would belong?
