This is going to seem like broken record, but...

Does this address any of the valid concerns with things like Klipper the
Jody Goldberg has raised elsewhere: content negotiation with the paste
target, enormous memory usage in some circumstances, etc?

The difficulty is that without solving those problems, this is not a
daemon that you can have turned on by default, since it essentially
breaks some applications (most of Jody's examples talk about Gnumeric
cutting and pasting, but there are similar things with XML documents
such as documentation editors, SVG editors, etc.).
