Can we restore a keyspace which contains a UDT to another keyspace?

Hi Team, I just read following question and i have one confusion please help me to clear my understandings .
https://community.datastax.com/questions/2345/how-to-restore-cassandra-snapshot-to-a-different-k.html

But as per documentation It is not possible to restore/load an SSTable with a UDT to another keyspace because a UDT belongs to a specific keyspace. in such case how can we still clone app data keyspace with different name . could you please guide method which is suitable for this case.

Requirement :
Create copy of dev_ks1 keyspace but with different name i.e ui_ks1 . dev_ks1 has many table which has few udt.

Which method can we use in this case ?

It is not possible to restore data which contains UDT columns to another keyspace at this point.

There is an outstanding feature request (internal ID DB-4279) that will hopefully be implemented in a future release.

I'm not in a position to provide an estimate since the solution is still being worked on. I will update this post for when it is released. Cheers!
