It would be easy to add this. I would even add it as a core function,
not as a script, as it is much easier to implement in the core.
I am not sure about the name though. "Duplicate Visible" doesn't quite
hit it. Perhaps someone has a better idea?

I often use the up/down buttons. Clicking a button is much easier than
doing drag and drop. We would need to do some user observations to
decide this. Without such data I'd vote for keeping the buttons.
