Cloning stack reset object IDs?

I just cloned a datagrid to see what would happen. I'm afraid all the
control ids just carried on from the last one used in the original datagrid
so using clone doesn't help.
I also tried copying a datagrid from its original card to a card in a
different substack. The control ids in the copied datagrid were way lower
than in the original datagrid (back down in the 1300 range) so that may be
a good way round this, although there are probably other complications I
haven't thought of.
I guess that's all expected behavior since IDs are numbered consecutively
within a stack (I think).
Don't have DGH so don't know what the cloning chamber does - sounds vaguely
Frankensteinian to me!
