Almost every English word is somehow overloaded with multiple meanings. 
I believe your linked deep copy is quite appropriate for what I am 
trying to express. If anyone has a suggestion on how to explain this 
better, please provide a complete replacement of the sentence - just 
dropping the term does not work.
