Comment (by SergeyBiryukov):

 Replying to [ticket:55712 afragen]:
 > Per #17173, the original intent was to remove `_copy_dir()` after the WP
 3.1 -> 3.2 update. Apparently there were issues with the Updates API 11
 years ago that likely don't exist today.

 I think this could use some further clarification on what exactly the
 issues were, and whether they indeed no longer exist. Looking at the
 discussions in comment:24:ticket:14484 and comment:7:ticket:17173, it
 looks like this had to do with Akismet getting reinstalled upon update.

 comment:9:ticket:17173 could also use some investigation to confirm that
 the curent API handles this as expected.
