Right, that's what Owen has always wanted to do. I don't think it gets
you out of the core problem though (it's really still broken if
pasting before exit and pasting after exit gives different results; so
you really still want to preserve all possible formats when the
clipboard manager takes over). So it seems to me like "take over only
at exit" is more of an optimization than a solution.
