Better Blocks

A few things always were a problem for me when designing templates. I haven't made any themes for months now so tell me if any of these have been handled.

1. I would like a way for a block's template to know if the block is left, right or center. I always have trouble making blocks which should look good in the left column also look good in the center. I would prefer a <{if (block_position eq "center") }> or something like that.

2. Block Cloning. XOOPS should have this builtin by now (A huge Thumbs up if it is). I was able to create an entire newspaper site with only 3 modules and a bunch of cloned blocks. The whole cloning process seemed too hackish and necessary for a modern CMS. http://www.hotlikepepperradio.com/cms/
