[PD] copy-paste vs. duplicate behavior

Hey all,

I was thinking that it would be nice if copy-paste had the same  
response and duplicate, i.e. shifting the position over by 10 pixels  
in x and y, then pasting.  I can't see a good reason why paste doesn't  
do that.  Anyone know of any?  Newbies get very frustrated by the  
current behavior.  Regular users get used to the Duplicate command,  
but I don't know of any other programs where you can't just copy-paste  
and you need a special function.
