The patch that I have provided lets Copy recognize 
protocols other than ftp as well.  It just sort of
merges all of Get's current functionality with Copy's.

If we are having the vision of a unified Copy/Get/Ftp, 
then the first/easiest consolidation would be the Copy & 
Get one.  Get is so much like copy except that it copies 
a file from a url.  Why maintain separate tasks for near 
identical functions?  This patch provides all that Get
provides and as you noted, filterset, mapper, etc. as
well.
