Copy biblio function

    Tangenting from this thread: -- would there be any usefulness out there for a function to copy a selected biblio record.

    I am thinking that in the the bibio_view screen there would be an additional menu link that would go to the biblio_new_form.php and fill in the information from  the biblio record it was called from.

    Problems / comments?

      I for one would love to see it added.  In fact have considered doing it for myself, but laziness, etc has always prevailed!

      Peter Leschev wrote code to do this over a year ago, and we still haven't integrated it.  It's in the patch tracker.  It's partly my fault (I am really strapped for time), but I also would like Dave's approval on new features before I check them in.  He is also strapped for time.  The two combined mean that we have useful contributions that are just sitting stagnant in the trackers.  It's a sad thing, and I think it discourages would-be contributers from even trying.

      Looked at it... works fine so far in 0.5.0...  I'll raise it in the next developers meeting to see if it should be added to 0.5.x
