Moreover, I think that there should be an option to copy a render layer from one scene to another one.... 

In many cases you need to do exact copies of render layers throughout many scenes. Currently the only way to do this is to create an empty scene with the render layer settinga, and then you have to start appending the objects from the animation scene.

> 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?
