Then it seems all discussion so far has been cross-purposes.

Klipper is polling the selections?  It must be, because the XFixes extension
isn't widely deployed. (The XFixes extension sends an event when a selection
is claimed.) Or, it relies on a private protocol to receive notification
of changes.

What GNOME has been talking about is a clipboard manager using the same
basic protocol as xclipboard and Motif's clipboard. That is a program
that claims the manager selection CLIPBOARD_MANAGER and the selection
CLIPBOARD. When it loses the CLIPBOARD selection, it requests data from
the new owner, and upon receipt of that data it reclaims the CLIPBOARD
selection. Through loss and reclamation of the CLIPBOARD selection, it
knows when new clipboard data is available.

My solution is here:
