Thanks for bringing this up and I've always wanted to find a way to clone drives. One way is using g4u but I want to clone a drive by using the same box. Is it possible to just go into single user mode, mount the two drives:

# mount -a /dev/wd0
# mount -a /dev/wd1

then use the copy command:

# cp /dev/wd0 /dev/wd1

Is this possible assuming both drives are the same capacity.
