Thanks for the patch.  However, fetching all AUX files IMHO is a bit too
much.  This is exactly the reason why eupdate does some extensive magic
to detect needed files from $FILESDIR.  I'm not sure how others feel
about potentially having more files in $FILESDIR than the latest ebuild
requires, but I know that for the tree this is not desirable.

That said, my opinion on the matter is that it is a known limitation of
ecopy, that I won't fix.  It probably is possible to "port" the
fetch_files function from eupdate to ecopy, but someone else should do
it then (and maintain it).
