It is neither documented nor surprising that "duplicate (member)"
returns the newly created cast member.
Here are some surprises:
1. If you duplicate, say member 2 of castLib 3, and it creates, say, member
10 of castLib 3, the result is just "10". The castlib number
is not returned, so there is no way to tell which castlib it is in. I guess
the assumption is that it is in the same castlib.
2. The default castlib is castlib 1, even if some other castlib is active.
This is in contrast to, say, the number of members property which assumes
3. You can duplicate castmembers across different castlibs.
4. It will duplicate an empty castmember, so long as the cast member is
less than the "number of members" property. So, if you have a
castmember in position 100, but none in position 85, this will erase castmember
duplicate member 85, member 100
5. If you duplicate the last castmember without specifying a destination,
it wraps around to the beginning of the cast to find the next open space.
At one point, I thought it mistakenly replaced cast member 1, which was
occupied. I was either hallucinating, or had specified member 1 as the
C'est la Director.
