I posted some code for this (just a proof of concept, not some usable
functionality with an UI). Chx might have made a patch out of it. There
was a direction to add this "basic node type cloning" feature into core,
and get rid of page/story and the node type code of blog/forum (all
these four are in fact the same basic node type) Then support CCK as
much as possible, but not in core. I am unsure whether this direction
was voted down, I myself would still prefer this way. Additionaly CCK
would probably have more space to breathe in contrib.
