Well, if you can afford to go by a (well-typed) assignment, there are much
less problems:

struct T {
  int x[2];

/*@ requires \valid(d) && \valid_read(s);
    requires \separated(d,s);
    ensures *d == *s;
void h(struct T* d, struct T* s) { *d = *s; }

is proved pretty easily by WP. It's really the fact that memcpy exposes the
gory details of byte-by-byte memory accesses that is the source of the
