well, first of all it's bad that your company only sees GUI-Tests as costs. Although, if you have a good Model-View-Controller concept implemented you can do many tests "in the background" with JUnit.
About copy & paste I got some time developing a nice qftest framework which solves common issues. E. g. in our CMS I have procedures to create a document, folder, create sets of documents, create users, ... In addition I have procedures for every action to execute. This way I can easily choose via parameters how the action should be executed (menu, shortcut, mnemonic, ...).
Of course developing this framework consumed a lot of time. But now I am very quick in writing new tests. E. g. to test a bug-fix it takes me 1 to 2 hours for a previously untested functionality. This includes learning new GUI-elements, extending the framework a little and writing the actual test. Especially DDT gave me even more speed.
Hope I could give you a slight impression of development speed. My feeling is: It's really fast...
