I face a small issue while translating the tutorial from JP Bourgeoy
(mirror effect), I'm facing a problem with the behavior of the clones.
-> fill and stroke of the cloned object is locked and synchronized with
the original object (while user can choose if geometric transformations
are linked or not)
the problem is i'd like to clone the original object, then fill it with
black and move it to enhance relief/create a shadow. -> not possible
I was wondering if it would be a good idea to let the user completely
choose (in Inkscape prefs for example) the behavior and thus decide if
fill and stroke must be linked or not.
At the moment, there is a simple workaround : duplicate then group.
Shall I submit a RFE ?

Per SVG spec, the style you assign to a <use> works as if it were the
style on a <g> which includes the copy of the source object. This
means that for a clone to have e.g. red color, the original which is
cloned must have no color at all (it will be painted black by default
then). Only in this case the red color from <use> will be inherited
into the local copy of the object and it will be red. If however the
source object has a color of its own, <use> cannot repaint it.
At least that's my understanding of the spec.
