Lightroom SDK: (additional) CreateVirtualCopy based on provided photo object(s) instead of selected photos

Based on the information from

I have been playing with the catalog:createVirtualCopies function.

It seems that now it is dependent upon a selected photo(s).
Using this in a plug-in I have first to select a photo and then create a virtual copy.
And what happens when the user selects a different photo in the User interface.

Request: could there ALSO be a similar function, yet that creates a virtual copy based on a given photo object.
For example similar to photo:setRawMetadata( key, value ) a function like
photo:createVirtualCopy( copyname ).
