Not until I looked at the source. It's neat though.

Seems like this would be simpler as:

         if ((entry->selection_start_pos == entry->selection_end_pos) ||

It's not completely reliable under race conditions, but I don't think
that's important here, and anyways, nothing will be unless you
grab the server.

I think some modifications to gtk_selection_received will be necessary
as well.

Off to try it out...
