Thank you, Scott and Andre. This option totally slipped my mind.

Scott's solution using a textual script is really neat. The playfield already 
keeps track of collections of Robots, so we could use it to track duplicates. 
The duplicate's position can be computed based on the cursor or count.

E.g. Playfield>>makeDuplicate
	self includeAtCursor: self getValueAtCursor costume duplicate player.
	self getValueAtCursor turn: 45; forward: 10; turn: 45
