revert to original-epub quickest way

I see no easy way to reinstate an .originalepub backup as .epub.
seems to require copying the file to somewhere outside of calibre library, renaming it, deleting the calibre entry ( thus losing the metadata) then re-adding it, then re-fetch metadata.

Am I missing an easier route ?

could the whole thing be automated within a future calibre release ?

real life example. I copy epub to epub, mess with the result, decide that original was better, wish to restore from the origianlepub file, but don't want to lose the metadata stuff & don't want to confuse the calibre database.....

For an individual book open the edit metadata window and right-click in the formats area.
For bulk select books, open the edit metadata window, check the box for Restore pre conversion originals, if available. Click OK.

epub to epub copies the source to epub-original before converting. I think if that epuboriginal file already exists then it is used as the source. should be easy to test.
