A year later, it's now clear that "copy-agent" is the package that
should be kept, since...
 - it works
 - it is well maintained (updates appear shortly after upstream releases)
 - it even installs systemd units and browser plugins

The "copy" package should be deleted, as...
 - it is broken
 - it has been flagged out-of-date for 10 months now with not reaction
from the maintainer
 - it is badly named

Can one of TUs please take care of this?
