"Copy" could take filelists where files are on different drives

I stand corrected then :)

I differ with Peter and you then, as I see path as being abused this way. The 
FileList type clearly conveys the meaning of an arbitrary list of files which 
are all required to exists, whereas Path conveys an ordered list of files 
(often just directories, but extended to JAR/ZIP and URL in Java), that exist 
or not, used to look up stuff (executables, resources, etc...).

These are completely disjoint things, and Path should not be abused to take on 
this new meaning IMHO.

Thanks, --DD
