As written in the issue summary (see for more details):
We need API points to perform deep copy of structs/arrays, which would
allow developers to easily mimic what happens when operating on
struct/array struct fields.
I also did a minor tweak on References.ofArray, as the setter was
redundantly creating an Array object instead of just copying.
