REALLY limiting, when you're trying to cut-and-paste from an email
message into something else.

are you sure you can't? Maybe that's because you're using the windows
way of doing it. If you use the X way (select with the mouse to copy and
press the middle mouse button to paste) it should work. It does for me.

Likely that's the problem.  Forgot about implict cut/paste.  THe only
issue I had with it is really, I guess, that there are times (for
example, when composing the messages) that you DO have a drop-down menu
for that.  Consistency (or lack thereof) I guess is what I'm getting at.

I can understand that... so my proposition is to remove all
cut/copy/paste menus because we simply CANNOT implement cut/copy/paste
in menus for everything that people want it for. It's just an impossible
task with the way X/Bonobo/etc work.
