The code that does the copy is the original PEP 405 implementation code (from 26 May 2012). I'm fairly sure that these files were copied over only because (at least prior to the Python 3.3 release in September 2012) they were needed to be in the venv for the venv to work correctly. Python internals may have changed subsequently, making these copies unnecessary.

I can't easily recreate a Python 3.3.0 on Windows to confirm this, but I'm pretty sure I only coded it to copy over what was actually needed at the time.
