[TxMt] Duplicating Files in the Project Drawer

The thread "Deleting files from the project drawer" reminded me that  
I've been meaning to ask about duplicating files. In the finder there  
is an option to duplicate a file giving it a name something like  
"copy of index.php". There are plenty of times I don't want to start  
from scratch and would like to duplicate a file and just change some  
minor things. Is there a reason this isn't a part of the context menu  
in the project drawer? If not I'd like this be a feature request for  
the next version. :)

Perhaps to make it better than the Finder's "duplicate" option maybe  
choosing it in TM could not only duplicate the file and name the file  
"copy of index.php" but also select the "copy of index" portion of  
the name for immediate renaming, leaving the extension ".php". That  
would be pretty slick and useful.
