If there are some objects in the folder that have conflicting names and
others that don't, what do you do?  Also, if you're thinking about
providing this functionality, what about spanning multiple folders? What
if some folders already exist?

to deal with them.  But that's just advice and you can freely ignore it.

That's right.

Perhaps.  Look at the interfaces Wiki.

An external method could do it.  Look at what _getCopy() does in
