Ability to move / copy projects between Shotgun sites

We've heard from clients who manage Shotgun sites, they would like the ability to move / copy entire projects between Shotgun sites. There are many use cases for this, a few would include

- Some studios spin up a new Shotgun site for a single show, and afterwards, want to merge it back into their main site

- People who manage a staging site want the ability to move select projects from the production site to the staging site, without overwriting the entire database

We'd love to hear your individual use-cases, add your vote to bump the priority on this feature request, and leave any additional use cases or requirements in the comments.

    At our studio, we have two separate shotgun sites - one for "secure" projects with IP whitelisting, and another for "non-secure" projects - (can be reached from any internet connection).  It occasionally happens where a project will start off as non-secure, and then circumstances will change and it needs to be migrated over to the secure URL.  It would be great if Shotgun provided a way to do this easily.

    Here's another use-case that is becoming more common for us as we get more people using Shotgun here:

    As I mentioned above, we have two Shotgun sites - "secure" for IP whitelisted access, and non-secure for everywhere access.  Supervisors here very frequently go back and forth from URL to URL as they are moved from project to project.  They will get used to having the pages setup on a project that wraps or they move off of, and start up on a new project.  It would be great to have the ability to import a projects configuration settings across URLs.  I wrote a script that kind of gives us this ability, but its on a page-by-page basis and doesn't include all of the nice things in the Tracking Settings, the Project Navigation Bar, etc.
