the function std.file.copy do not overwrite a file if "dest" already

maybe a boolean to force copy could help

void copy(in char[] from, in char[] to, in bool force =3D false);

In any case explain this into the doc please

The behavior of std.file.copy probably needs to be better defined in general: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3862 - Jonathan M Davis
