Personally I think this would be an ugly hack.  I like the idea of just
putting text in a clipboard and dealing with it.  The fact that GNOME
still can't even paste copied text after an app has closed is pretty
shocking to me.  I know that dealing with OLE type stuff is a PITA, but
I would think that getting plain old copy and pasting working would be
something put in early and then deal with OLE style stuff later.
