The Klipper fellow has mentioned that proposal before.  Sadly it is
mostly useless unless the application pretends.  The mechanism it
proposes requires the app to approximate how much content will be
produced.  Doing even an approximate measurement will require the
loading of all of the supported clipboard exporters, which is part
of what I want to avoid.

It's only use, as far as I can tell, is to lie and set the max to 0 as
a proxy for 'OPT_OUT_OF_CLIPBOARD_MANAGEMENT'.  Using an ultra
coarse approximation
    eg number_of_cells x 1k + sum(embedded_images)
is going to produce wild overstatements for most formats
