Currently, attempting to deepcopy a property object will result in an unexpected TypeError:
>>> import copy
>>> obj =property()
>>> new_obj = copy.deepcopy(obj)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\PythonSoftwareFoundation.Python.3.7_3.7.1264.0_x64__qbz5n2kfra8p0\lib\copy.py", line 169, in deepcopy

TypeError: can't pickle property objects
What I believe is happening here is that since property objects are not treated by the copy module as atomic, they are passed off to be pickled and so our error is raised.
This can be fixed in a similar manner to how it works for type objects, function objects and more.
Adding a single line of code to Lib/copy.py after line 208:
d[property] = _deepcopy_atomic
Means that property objects will be treated as atomic, and therefore returned as-is.
Note: these values reflect the state of the issue at the time it was migrated and might not reflect the current state.
