The more I've thought about mirror, the more I can see the steps you go
through as not being worth it.

I can see that either you'll get asked too many questions, or if IV can
actually automate it there will be times when you wish it wouldn't.

Thats the common sense here after many discussions.

But What I really would like to see in IV, just in addition to the
derive/mirror:

make any part, make a idw off it.
mirror the part in a way, that all sketches/features stay intact, but
mirrored, and keep the idw associated to it (better yet, rename both in DA
before mirror)
So you end up with a mirrored part, fully parametric, with a finished idw
(may need some cleanup though), but with NO parametric relation to the first
part.
This feature would save me a lot of work on occassion.

I've done this in MDT many times with great success!
