Support for Asynchronous Cross-Account Copy Blob?

Are there plans for version 5 to support the new asynchronous cross-account copy blob?

Particularly for the new Virtual Machines feature where you are moving around large VHD files, leveraging that updated Copy Blob API would make moving VHDs between storage accounts much faster.

I second the call for this type of feature. I'm faced with moving 50+containers of blobs from the North Central datacenter to a storage account in the West datacenter. I wish I had something that could do this quickly and easily.

Don't forget: We need to be able to copy the cache control headers, too.

BTW: Showing the cache control header on a blob is **still** apparently broken or missing for blob properties. How long have we been waiting for this fix ... a year now! Wow. I guess you get what you pay for.
