Good point, however copying an entire view could take a while depending on the 
number of blocks involved.. and if it were to get interrupted because 
someones web browser crashed/timed-out/lost their internet connection it 
could cause problems... i'm going to go ahead a write a copy that can run 
from the command line and then will see about the best may to move that into 
the main interface.  The code will mostly be exactly the same so it shouldn't 
be to hard..
