Sorry if it has already been discussed, or if this is a stupid idea.

By looking at the signature, my thought was that the only use of shutil.copyfileobj was to wrap the use of sendfile, and use a fallback if it is not available on the system or not usable with "fake" Python files (not having a file descriptor, eg. like gzip.GzipFile).

By looking at the implementation, I was surprised that it does not try to call os.sendfile.
