Yes, in the technical sense of .copy() but I'm not sure if that is  
what I as a user expect in a CMS. Do I really want an exact duplicate  
of everything or perhaps a new object with the content of the old? If  
the original object has already been published should my new object  
also be published? If so surely I'm breaking with the workflow  

In my experience (and I'm not just talking about how I do things)  
copies are usually made with the original object being archived as a  
sort of security blanket in case something goes wrong.
