But Mark, the "entire method" is simply a call to shutil.copyfileobj
(well, that and a docstring). So "duplicating" it is the only thing
possible, unless you want to define a class variable "BLOCKSIZE". It can
be supported without duplicating the functionality of shutil.copyfileobj,
but that sure sounds like an overkill....
