    Description

      It should be possible to "clone" a collection, and to do so cheaply. This might be its own command or be an option of collection creation; either way, it'd be great to support the vast majority of the same options of collection creation. A cloned collection should be the same in every way (shard ranges, collection properties, replicas types and counts, etc.) unless configured to be different (e.g. specify a different configSet). Most importantly, a cloned collection should have the same data, and this can be accomplished via UNIX hard links (when supported) to the underlying files. This would make clones cheap! A no-data option should be supported as well, useful when the intended action is to re-index subsequently.
