Indeed, sorry about that. I’m attempting to patch the downstream
library that led me to this issue:

I’m not sure what Emac’s principles are on it, but perhaps an error
pointing to this change when attempting to copy to a non-existing
directory would help people in the future as well since this is a
change in behavior to an existing function w/o a deprecation.

Thanks,

Aaron
