[LON-CAPA-admin] manipulating .sequence subparts

The problem is that any sequence that can be manipulated in DOCS 
(resources (problems, other sequences, html) added and removed) physically 
resides in the course directory, not in resource space.

With the scheme of dumping the top-level sequence you could still set 
parameters (due dates, etc...) on the sub-folders (for example: assignment 
1). The hitch is that the instructor would have to got in as co-author to 
change a sequence and republish it.

Creating a course that is then cloned may be your best option for this.
