Copying projects and/or modules

I am in a situation where it would be nice to be able to make a "deep copy" of a project; i.e. start out with a second project and modify the project and module settings without affecting the first project. Is this possible?

What we ended up doing was creating a project, and then puting tags in the XML file where we would substitute different project info. We have a perl script that generates the modified iws/ipr/iml files.

So when we create a new branch/view we do a make iwsconfig, and presto. Brand new IDEA project set up for us.

of course when Intellij changes the project format, I will end up complaining, but it was the best we could do.
