We discussed this before and came to the conclusion that it's a bad
idea. What should be done instead of polluting the user directory with
such copies is to create a copy transparently whenever the user edits a
system resource. And there should be the possibility to easily hide
system resources. The new tags system should help with this. Being able
to hide resources by adding a 'hidden' tag was one of the reasons for
adding tags in the first place.
