If you use the copy command on a stack, the paste command will do the
same as the clone command, duplicating the stack with a name prepended
with "Copy of".
That said, it appears there's a difference in the binary data of a
copied stack and a saved copy of the same stack file. For starters, LC
6.6.2 saved in the v5 format, but copied stacks have a "2700" header for
the old 2.7 format. Bug maybe?
But worse, even when I save a stack in the old 2.7 format, the data in
the stack file still differs from the data in the clipboard is a
surprisingly large number of ways, including an apparent replication of
nearly the entire data in the clipboard, and with a different header
than used in the stack file.
So right now, my dream of being able to get a stack's data from RAM to
save to a server without going to disk as an intermediary step is hosed. :(
