Ignoring the effort to make the changes ...

Is either of these procedures (move one file at a time or edit the lpi
file) the way this should ideally work?

I was expecting that Save Project As ... would allow me to clone the
project so I could start a spin-off.   Would "Project / Publish
Project do a clone?

Is there any reason I should not create an enhancement / feature
request to change this behavior?
