> Code exists in copytask that copies files (fancy that); however, when listing the files,
if a single directory exists at the source with no other files, it will skip the directory
and copy the files inside instead.
> This directory in various tests happens to be the "data" directory from export, or some
random partition directory ("foo=bar") that if not skipped makes it into the real partition
directory at the destination.
> It won't do that if any other files or directories are present.
> This seems brittle. Caller of the CopyTask should specify exactly what it wants copied
instead of relying on this behavior.
