This informal article is not about transferring funds between wallets, nor about using the 'sweep address' procedure to transfer funds from one address to another.
It is about cloning an address from one wallet into another different wallet. This address will be usable from both.
Wallets are sets of Addresses. Each Address has a balance ('amount') an id ('address'), a tag ('account'), and a private key.
In order to clone addresses between wallets you have to know the private key of source address.
