I said already, that I came late into the discussion, sorry ...

I reread the thread. It didn't convince me, that we shall copy "the
*contents* of one directory" with `copy-directory'. This would be a new
behaviour. What is it good for?

The beginning of the discussion was a bug report by Thierry. This bug
seems to be fixed with his latest patch.

Best regards, Michael.
