Copy/paste a read-only file in solution explorer should create a writeable file


In a Python project, make a file read-only using Windows Explorer.
In solution explorer, copy/paste this file.
Open the copy of the file, you'll see the lock icon showing it's read-only (you can verify that in explorer).

Expected: the copy of the file shouldn't be read-only. This is what C# does.

Important: Careful not to affect the cut/paste functionality. Cut/paste must not change the file attributes.
