Ah, this seems to be more then what we need (so it is going to be a nice
contrib module :). Your cloneanode module actually wraps nodeapi calls,
so that it bridges every type of call to the original function. NCI
would not do this, since it would only deal with built in node
functionality, which is already handled, so no need to tap into nodeapi.
I will see when I can look into this.
