[Bf-committers] Feature request - "Copy Render Layer"

I am missing a little feature that shouldn't be very hard to implement, especially that I was able to create a simple add on that does exactly what I am looking for.
When creating render layers we have the option to add new render layer, remove render layer, but what is missing is the ability to make the exact copy of existing render layer.
It would help in many cases, like when you want to add new render layer where you'd like to change just one setting comparing to the render layer that already exists.

As I mentioned at the beginning I created a simple add on that does it. It adds a button in the render layers panel. The button executes the operator that creates exact copy of selected render layer.
I could simply ask for including this add on to blender, but I think such feature shouldn't be implemented via add-on, but on a "higher level". What do you think?

Here's the code:
