Yeah, that's got to be a HUGE pattern, and is probably outside the scope of what I'm trying to accomplish here.

I don't blame you for trying it, at all, but this really isn't intended to be a way to duplicate an entire established site. Know what I mean?

Actually, after the review stage there is nothing to upload. It's actually creating all the items in the new site.

There's a performance issue with creating lots of pages in a single folder, and it gets progressively worse with every new page or folder you add. It's usually not a big deal if you're just adding one page, but the wizard (in your case) is adding loads of pages all at once.

Let's leave it at, "this is a known performance issue with patterns that contain many pages, and we're looking into it."
