I think data deduplication / CoW / reflink copy is better implemented via FICLONE. "cp --reflink" uses it, I presume because it's older than copy_file_range(). I have a working patch adding CoW copy support for Linux and OSX (but not Windows). I think that should be exposed as a separate shutil.reflink() though, and copyfile() should just do a standard copy.
