AppleScript to open new Finder window in same folder as frontmost window

Nice hint, but the situation given as an example of when this would be useful is bogus. From the hint:
There may be some situations when you want to duplicate the current window, such as when you're moving files around among sub-folders in a specific folder.
If you ever find yourself in that situation, just Command-double-click on one of the sub-folders: now you "magically" have two windows, one of them in the sub-folder you chose.

In fact you can select all the subfolders you want to "move files around among", then command-double-click one of them and now you have windows on each of the desired sub-folders, no Applescript needed.

I'm sure we can come up with other situations where the hint would actually be useful, though.
