What we could do also is create a function copy-directory-contents, that
reuse the code of precedent version of copy-directory (but not
interactive this time) and call this function in
dired-copy-file-recursive instead of copy-directory.

In this case we could rewrite copy-directory to avoid duplicate code,
possibly: (no urge in this case as actual copy-directory works fine) 

1) Writing copy-directory-contents (or whatever name) to allow
creating the structure like actual copy-directory, or not like ancient
version leaving this job to dired-create-files.

2) Writing a copy-directory that reuse dired code (i.e dired-create-files).
In this case it would have all interactive messages, ask etc..
