I had plenty of confused times with VID.
But I don't think a "brute force" copy/deep function helps
at all. The problem is one of understanding. We need
nice tools for seeing the situation, not just blindly copying
everything. You see what I mean? When we want to copy
things, we want to be selective, otherwise we become very
I think a deep/copy would be useful for VID only if it has really
good options for selective copying. It must be able to ignore
certain objects like system/view/vid etc.
Such a useful function is very hard to write and would require
lots of tweaking and maintenance as View and VID evolve.
(I think so anyway, maybe not).
