Bug Description

Please add a copy command that works similar to 'run cp -rf'. This command should allow to copy files (overriding) from one branch to another.

1. Use case, mix an ubuntu package branch with another one containing independent files.

# bzr-builder format 0.3 deb-version {debupstream}+svn{date}+r{revno}-0
lp:ubuntu/bash
cp lp:minos-org/bash/debian/etc.bashrc lp:ubuntu/bash/debian/etc.bashrc

In the above example merge and nest-part won't work since debian/ already exist in the original ubuntu branch

2. Use case, copy files from one place to another within a branch

# bzr-builder format 0.3 deb-version {debupstream}+svn{date}+r{revno}-0
lp:~user/project/program
cp lp:~user/project/program/packaging/debian lp:~user/project
