Please remove features that copy Synapse objects in ways that do not preserve access restrictions on the original object.
For example, the copy function in the synapseutils module: https://github.com/Sage-Bionetworks/synapsePythonClient/blob/master/synapseutils/copy.py#L90
This function allows users to copy entities recursively when access restrictions are attached to the original but does not (and because of permissions cannot) create the AR on a destination. It allows duplicates data in Synapse. Including it in a supported client misleads external users who may be inclined to use it.
this change should address the Governance concerns for maintaining access restrictions.
