I am using shutil.copytree to setup new user home directories within an automated system.  The copy2 function is called in order to copy individual files and preserve stat data. 

However, copytree simply calls os.mkdir and leaves directory creation at the mercy of my current umask (in my case, that's daemon context - 0).

I've got to then iterate through the newly copied tree and set permissions on each individual subdirectory. 

Adding a simple copystat(src, dst) on line 112 of fixes the problem. 

The result should be uniform; either preserve permissions across the board, or leave it to the mercy of the caller.  I know there's an enhancement request already open to supply a 'func=' kw argument to copytree.
