[Rd] copy an external pointer on assignment

Is there a mechanism in R for copying the business end of an external pointer on assignment? For instance, if x is an external pointer and I enter

> y <- x

I would like to make a copy of the structure that x refers to and assign its address to y.

Thanks,
Kjell
