We're talking about implicit calls to a copy function here, not about
writing your own code (ie. copying a structure might invoke this function).
We have both functions in the c-library, so it's no issue there. For the
kernel: yes, it's both historical and preferrential (for me at least :-)), 
and there's no reason to change.

Sure does, it's in libc.
