Hmm, how common is it to have a frame that doesn╩╝t have the same frame
parameters as 'default-frame-alist', and you want to replicate them?
Personally I quite like the current behaviour.

How about you make it take a prefix argument to get back
'make-frame-command' semantics (or keep the current ones, and add
'clone-frame' semantics to the prefix arg)?
