When a field in an entity with component subtypes is duplicated to an entity which also has component subtypes, copy the trigger (and other) variations to the target subtypes.

Use Case

Create a field in an entity with component subtypes. Alter the behaviour of the FRM version, including widget and value changed trigger. Duplicate the field. The C.S. variation is also copied.


Currently, there is no way of setting up default behaviour for a component variation of a field. Field templates are not C.S. aware. Extending the duplication to allow for duplication of all the attributes of the source field, would allow for \'templates by the back door\'. In that one could set up dummy entities containing the default behaviour for the field type.
