Morever, we should be able to cut-n-paste graphics and anything else
as an end state.  I seem to remember that Mac could do this since the
80s with Hypercard.  We are two generations behind on clipboards. ;)

I would love to see someone work with Jim, and Xfree guys and others 
on re-defining our X clipboard protocols to meet the needs of desktop
projects.  The technical in me laments such a change since I like 
cut-n-paste the way it works today and it would drive me crazy if I
was doing sysadmining if I had to explicitly cut-n-paste using 

So while I think it's great that we are solving these problems, but we
should also solve the bigger picture.
