Currently, the Python implementation of the Element class in xml.etree.ElementTree defines a method called copy() which the C implementation does not define, whereas the C implementation defines a __copy__() method (and a __deepcopy__() method) which the Python implementation does not define.

Given that the documentation makes no mention of a copy() method and that its definition would be masked by a standard import of xml.etree.ElementTree, I propose that it be renamed to __copy__() so that copy.copy() can make use of it.
