small bug in the DIRED copy command

    Can't copy author because WHEEL or OPERATOR capability required

This is a bug in the TOPS-20 operating system, I believe.  The SFUST system
call doesn't let you set the file writer's name even if you can write the
file.  It does let you set the file author's name, but no program seems to
pay any attention to the file author.

I suupose the only thing we can do about this is put a kludge into the Tops-20
file server to not report this error.  But that doesn't seem very reasonable.
