If you copy one table, you have to handle constraints manually. While
copying whole database, it should work (if there are not possible cross
db relations, what I don't know right now).

Yes, currently you can use this to copy table without constraints.

This should be easy to add, is it really needed? Shouldn't we provide
tool for copying all dependent tables?
