I think this would be a useful addition indeed.

Looking at the SchemeCrossReference[1] and the PLT Racket manual[2] I
find that Gauche, Racket, Scsh and STk all have a procedure compatible
with the signature (copy-port source destination) where source
satisfies input-port? and destination satisfies output-port?. If
CHICKEN got a procedure for the same purpose, I think it would
definitely make sense to make it compatible with this calling
convention as well.
