[development] Clone Node with File Attachments

I actually figured out how to get the file attachments from the original 
node to appear on the submission form for the new node:

 * Implementation of hook_prepare().
function agenda_prepare(&$node) {
  if (arg(0) == 'node' && is_numeric(arg(1)) && arg(2) == 'clone') {
    $orig_agenda = node_load(arg(1));
    $node->files = $orig_agenda->files;

HOWEVER,  when I click on the "submit" button and save the new node, the 
file attachments do NOT appear.  Can someone tell me what I'm missing here?
