Take a look at VMMaker>copyFileNamed:to: which I stuck in there because
I couldn't face trying to fix FileDirectory at the time. It can make
use of the trivial plugin FileCopyPlugin whch simply makes sure the
file is copied with any/all type, permission, owner stuff intact. The
plugin is not provided for all platforms though.

Tim Rowledge, tim at,
