Copy packages to multiple destination series in single operation

Bug Description

On a page like this:
I have the option to copy a package to different destination series. However, since the "Destination Series" is a pulldown, I can only copy to one series at a time, which requires me to manually repeat the same steps for each series.

I would like the option to copy to multiple destination series in the same operation (e.g., with checkboxes instead of a pulldown).

For example, I "dput" my package to Karmic, but then I want to "Copy existing binaries" to Jaunty, Intrepid, Hardy, and Dapper.

Alternatively, I would love to have a command line method to copy binaries to different series in Launchpad so that I can automate the whole operation.

This won't be easy since the additional checks required during copying may well make the request time out (more than they already do). We need to improve the speed of the checks as a pre-requisite to doing this.

FWIW, you can automate the copying using the Launchpad API - you could make a small piece of code copy a package to multiple distroseries. See syncSource() in
