For the record, the point of zc.copy is that you can specify what is  
duplicated and what is linked.  The decision is hardcoded in the  
zope.copypastemove code.  Both use the same basic mechanism.   
Registering the adapters in zc.copy gives you the same behavior as  
zope.copypastemove, but then you can add more behavior (e.g., don't  
copy but link object X, reset counter y) for your copies.

This isn't very clear to me, but if you fire the appropriate event  
and you are using the default IKeyReference implementation then the  
new copies should be indexed as different objects than the original,  
as usual.
