Interesting notion.  I recently read a science fiction story set in the distant future where people could be replicated at will.  In the story, it was not uncommon to meet one's clone.  The clones were treated as separate individuals- perhaps analogous to how identical twins are treated in our society.  This seemed reasonable to me.  In this context I think I would NOT be especially disturbed to meet my clone.
