Gordon,
  This certainly would make sense.  The question becomes "If os.chmod
doesn't exist, should shutil.copy() fail?"  I'm not at all sure what
the answer is, but I can see it going either way.  shutil.copymode()
and shutil.copystat() should certainly fail, but it's not at all clear 
that shutil.copy() should.
  Someone more aware of the Java/JPython issues than myself should
make the call; I seem only to start up JPython when a thread like this 
pops up.  ;-)
