Clone a project?

I am finding that I often want a project that is almost exactly like another. For my case they are typically Maven projects so I want the same dependencies same libraries etc. I just want to add some different classes. Right now I do a very brute force method by literally copying the folder and renaming the new one and then going through the files and folder structure and renaming the folders and the file references. This while very time intensive, error prone, and gets me into trouble with some identifiers works pretty well. But I know ther must be a better way. I was wondering if there was either a way to clone a project or create a project template with the IDE?

Please try Tools -> Save Project as Template. It's available since IDEA
