Re: [Nautilus-list] cut/copy/paste

You know, after thinking a bit more about it, maybe this should be something
incorporated into the mainstream Gnome libraries, not just in Nautilus.  It would
be nice if any kind of data could be placed in the clipboard (files, text
fragments, images, image fragments, sound bites, etc.) and any application could
access them non-linearly.  You could write a panel applet front-end to it and
Nautilus could have a sidebar front-end also.
