Change behavior of "Layer via Copy" to not affect how layers are clipped when copying a clipped layer.

I often work with layers clipped to other layers and also need to make copies of those layers.

This is what happens when I attempt a simple CTRL+J (Layer via Copy) on the "Accordion" layer:

Wouldn't it be nice if everything stayed clipped like it's obviously meant to be, just like when you alt drag? But it's been this way for as long as I can remember.
