I have developed a simple group system (similar to OG in some ways,
very diferent in others) so I need a user beeing able to import nodes
from other groups to his own.
To do so I have created a form which loads all the nodes from other
groups as checkboxes. The checked items will be cloned to his group.

I haven't tried node_clone, but I think it is UI oriented; I just need
to clone a node knowing its ID (all group permissions, etc... are
rewritten using nodeapi of my custom node).
