Feature Request: Copy Multiple Layers (extendscript)

I would like to be able to copy multiple layers (including parented) from one comp to another using extendscript.

 

Currently I can only copy one layer at a time which doesn't work for parenting. If I want to copy several layers to another comp, I need to unparent them, then copy one at a time using the Layer object's "copyToComp" method. This is different from the native app interface which allows you to select and copy multiple layers to another comp, preserving parenting.

 

The layerCollection object doesn't have any methods for this, but seems like a great place to put it.
