std.file.copy
the function std.file.copy do not overwrite a file if "dest" already
exist and they are nothing about this into documentation:
http://dlang.org/phobos/std_file.html#copy

maybe a boolean to force copy could help

void copy(in char[] from, in char[] to, in bool force = false);

In any case explain this into the doc please

The behavior of std.file.copy probably needs to be better defined in general:
